Current Research Themes

Narratives on the Future of Work

What impact will the five forces of globalisation, technology, demography, society, and resources have on your organisation in the years ahead? Within this theme, we will explore the interplay between the five forces and a set of twenty corresponding trends that will disrupt industries, organisations and talent models. Members will benefit from insights on how to future-proof their organisational design, ready to thrive in the new world of work.

The Agile People Strategy

As the world becomes increasingly volatile and unpredictable, organisations need to react faster and more flexibly. They cannot depend on just a few decision-makers to become more responsive and agile but rather require their entire workforce, those within and beyond their borders, to fluidly and proactively respond to change. Memebers will examine what role HR has in driving the agile organisation, how people strategies will need to change and how technological advances enable this agility.

The Future of High Performance

How will you redefine high performance in your organisation in the years ahead? We will explore new capabilities such as leading and performing within diverse teams, delivering value within talent ecosystems, and enabling agility within the organisation. We will shed new light on the productivity conundrum, establishing how fit for purpose this metric is in the new world of work. This is an opportunity for your organisation to find out what it really takes to enable high performance in the future of work, informing your talent, leadership and development strategies.
