Calendar11 April 2017

This year’s study gathered input from 400+ senior executives, 1,700+ HR professionals, and 5,400+ employees from 20 industries and 37 countries around the world. Technology advances are re-shaping value chains, making people and information more accessible, and re-defining how work gets done. At the same time, the changing demographic profile of employees and shifting expectations of the work experience are challenging the traditional model of what it means to “go to work.” 

An overarching theme of Empowerment in a Disruptive World permeates how business leaders, HR professionals, and employees are viewing the Future of Work. Download your own copy of Mercer’s 2017 Global Talent Trends and start shaping your workforce of the future today.

Three imperatives to help companies leap forward


A lot has been said about an organization’s ability to bounce back when faced with adversity. But disruption brings adversity and opportunity, so this year’s Talent Trends Study also provides actionable advice on three imperatives that can help you bounce forward.

  1. Attracting & Retaining Tomorrow’s Workforce

    1 in 3 employees are satisfied in their current role but are still planning to leave in the next 12 months. How can you ensure that your that your employee value proposition (EVP) is truly aligned to your company’s DNA and provides a compelling reason to join or stay?


  2. Building for an Unknown Future

    Only 42% of employees say their company makes it easy to innovate today. How do you prepare your workforce for jobs that don’t yet exist? How do you draw on the full breadth of your organisation’s institutional knowledge and ensure the best ideas are brought forward?


  3. Cultivating a Thriving Workforce

    83% of employees already feel they can bring their authentic selves to work. But what can companies do to ensure that everyone feels energized and empowered to contribute? What does it take for people to thrive at work?
