New! Mercer’s 2019 Global Talent Trends Report

According to Mercer’s 2019 Global Talent Trends study, nearly all (94%) of executives in Singapore predict significant disruption in the next three years, compared to 25% in 2018. As executives focus on making their organizations “future-fit”, significant human capital risks – including the ability to close the skills gap and overcome employee change fatigue – can impede transformation progress. Addressing these concerns is paramount, given that less than half of executives rate their company’s ability to mitigate human capital risks as very effective. In today’s climate of uncertainty, employees seek stability. Mercer’s study finds that job security is one of the top three reasons employees in Singapore joined, and stay at, their company. Yet, one in two employees are concerned that AI and automation will replace their job. Download the whitepaper to discover more insights into our four talent trends.
