Canadian leaders must prepare for the future: report
But only 28% of survey respondents are ready to make the transformation.
TORONTO — Despite digital-driven disruption and continuing shifts to the workforce, workplace and nature of work, Canadian leaders aren’t ready to make the required transformation to become organizations of the future, says a Deloitte report.
The Toronto-based advisory firm’s research found only 28% of Canadian respondents feel ready to do so.
In its 2017 Canadian Human Capital Trends snapshot, A new future for Canadian organizations, Deloitte calls for all executives to take the lead to create organizations of the future.
Deloitte found that only 25% of respondents feel ready to develop the leadership they need for the future, down from 33% last year, and below global readiness of 32%.
Many organizations are making technology-focused trends (digital HR, the augmented workforce, and robotics, cognitive computing and artificial intelligence) a top priority in the future. But readiness ranges from just 8% to 29%.
Deloitte’s 2017 Human Capital Trends survey involved 10,000 HR and business leaders in 140 countries. Canadian trends are based on the responses of more than 300 respondents.
