The New Meaning of Talent: Adapting to the Work and the Workforce of Tomorrow | Allegis Group

Workforce Trends

According to a recent study by the Allegis Group of 1,000 HR decision-makers, 94% of them report that navigating talent management trends and challenges today is more complicated than five years ago. These challenges range from longer hiring cycles, increased costs, and productivity, to name a few. This report explores six key trends in how organizations are addressing these challenges through three lenses. 1) Who does the work? 2) How do companies secure the workers they need? 3) What is the nature of the work itself? One challenge that organizations are overcoming is the demand to meet the needs of multiple generations in the workplace. Rather than focus on the unique needs of each generation, organizations are focusing on addressing the shared needs of the workforce, such as their desire for flexibility (e.g., work location, hours worked, etc.) A few organizations are getting creative in this space. For example, one company offers 12-week, paid “returnships,” giving seniors who have been out of the workforce for two or more years the opportunity to work on professional assignments while receiving coaching and mentoring. Another organization “offers a 10-week paid internship for women who have been out of work for multiple years, a flexible approach that enables skilled workers to restart their careers.” There are several insights throughout this report on other trends and practices.”
