In today’s global economy, business leaders understand that talent is a primary source of competitive advantage. Whether entering a new market, innovating existing processes, or developing or expanding product or service lines, talent is the essential element of every core business function. Yet despite growing investments in talent, many leaders still cite the lack of adequate talent pipelines among their most critical business challenges. Mercer’s new Talent Barometer Survey explores why this remains such an elusive goal for organizations around the world.

The full survey report examines:

  • The degree to which organizations have formal, strategic workforce plans that addresses their most critical talent.
  • Trends in organizational investments in talent – and whether organizations believe their investments in human capital are paying off.
  • Factors that characterize a successful workforce plan.
  • Three critical accelerators for high-performing talent – education, health and wellness, and career experience – and the effective practices and opportunities in each.
  • The level of interventions employers are making in each of these areas to ensure that their talent is highly competitive, competent, and productive.
  • The organizational enablers that support enhanced talent management.
  • Industry and regional patterns in talent development.

The Mercer Talent Barometer Survey was conducted among HR and talent executives at more than 1,260 organizations around the world. These organizations vary in size from fewer than 1,000 employees to more than 10,000 employees (including government and not-for-profit organizations) and represent a wide variety of industries. A detailed breakout of regional and industry findings is included in the full report, along with the complete global findings.

The survey was conducted as part of Mercer’s ongoing collaboration with The World Economic Forum, and preliminary findings were presented at the Forum’s 2013 Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
