Theme 2: Winning the talent race
The future of work is now, and employees are taking charge.
In 2021, organisations confronted a transformed employment landscape. They struggled to understand and follow an array of tax, HR and immigration obligations. They also contended with changing customer demands and labour practices — such as heightened ESG expectations and the rise of gig workers — which created more operational complexity.
Welcome to 2022, which is no less complex or challenging. Employee shortages have hit multiple sectors, and the balance of power has shifted. In the global race for talent, employees are the new bosses. Employers that don’t move quickly to improve work flexibility and benefits and provide an equitable work environment will be on the back foot.
