2021 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends | Deloitte Insights

Workforce Trends

Deloitte has released its latest study on the global human capital trends for 2021, highlighting the five key trends reshaping work, the workforce, and the workplace. The five trends are 1) Designing work for well-being: The end of work/life balance.  2) Beyond reskilling: Unleashing worker potential.  3) Superteams: Where work happens.  4) Governing workforce strategies: Setting new directions for work and the workforce. 5) A memo to HR: Accelerating the shift to re-architecting work. For each of the five trends, the report urges organizational leaders to make a “fundamental mindset shift: from a focus on surviving to the pursuit of thriving.” For example, the trend Designing work for well-being: The end of work/life balance refers to firms taking well-being beyond work/life balance by designing well-being into work and life. A “surviving” mindset concerning this trend is to support well-being through programs adjacent to work. A “thriving”  mindset is to integrate well-being into work through thoughtful work design. The report includes many practical insights for how firms can position themselves and their workforces to thrive in a new world of work. For reference, I am also including the 2020 report here.
