Making Better People Decisions

Realize the Full Potential of Your People

People are an organization's most valuable asset, largest cost, and also a major source of risk— therefore, getting your people strategy right can often be the difference between success or failure.

Unfortunately, in the face of rapidly rising healthcare costs, growing retirement savings gaps, fierce competition for talent, ongoing technological change and unprecedented shifts in workforce behaviors and expectations, organizations are struggling to develop the comprehensive human capital strategies they need to compete in an increasingly volatile world.

Our Human Capital products and advisors help clients navigate today's most pressing people challenges to create a healthier, more engaged, and ultimately more productive workforce.

Five Big Human Resources Trends to Watch in 2024


Five Big Human Resources Trends to Watch in 2024

It's never been more important for HR leaders to help shape and support the execution of business strategies. However, to be successful in today’s volatile world, HR teams must stand ready to understand and harness five fast moving trends.

Enabling Better Decisions

Faced with new and interconnected workforce challenges, human resources leaders and their teams are rapidly evolving into critical business partners tasked with advising boards of directors and senior executives on an ever-changing people landscape.

Historically, human resources functions spent 80 percent of their time on administrative or operational tasks. Today, these same teams are spending over 60 percent of their time on strategic initiatives that fall into two equally important categories.

First, there are areas of increased importance adjacent to traditional human resources responsibilities, like boosting employee engagement, reimagining employee value propositions and strengthening total rewards strategies. Next, teams face a whole new category of work that reflects the changing nature of the employee dynamic, including managing the adoption of artificial intelligence, tackling rising healthcare costs, and dealing with pay equity and pay transparency, among many other topics. All of these items, both traditional and emerging, are now high on boardroom agendas.

Our actionable analytics and connected solutions, spanning every aspect of an organization’s people strategy, help clients make better human capital decisions in these areas and more.
