Welcome to the first Human Capital Center newsletter of 2019! A new year brings opportunities…to learn, to connect, to advance, and to have an impact. As the leader of the Center, I hope that each of these newsletters will offer you just that. Each month, we’ll select a few insights from our latest research, let you know of opportunities to connect with peers and experts, and get you caught up on recent thought leadership in various media outlets. Please do review below the many ways in which we can support you in the important work you do.
To get started, here is an insight from our annual flagship report, the 2019 C-Suite Challenge: The Future-Ready Organization:
Developing the next generation of leaders is critical to future success. But is there enough emphasis on developing digital skills? Investments CEOs will make to get future leaders ready include improving the quality of formal training and offering more cross-functional rotational opportunities—sweet spots for millennials. But they may be missing a critical piece of the developmental puzzle—exposing leaders to digital experiences. Less than one-third chose providing this experience as one of their top three leadership development investments.
Let’s get ready for the future together! Here's to a wildly successful 2019 for you personally and the organizations you serve.
