People risk: why the need for change is urgent. Part 1 of the Transforming Engagement Series


This report is the first of a three-part series that will provide the context and practical steps needed to meet the challenge of transforming organisational culture into one that engages its employees and reduces its people risks.

This first report aims to bring into succinct focus the key challenges facing businesses today, alongside the vital areas where HR teams will increase or decrease their attention during 2021. We cut through the enormity of the challenge by breaking down, in data, practical lists and advice, the actions against which HR can check thinking and rework or expand current plans.

The next 2 reports in the Transforming Engagement Series will be:

  • Aligning corporate culture and human values - Publishes in July 2021
  • Technology change is business change - Publishes in November 2021

This research, conducted with the support of global consultancy Mercer Marsh Benefits, demonstrates just how much businesses will focus on people and broader society values this year.

During 2021, almost two thirds of HR teams will focus on applying new organisational structures: a clear indicator that businesses will continue to reshape over the coming year. As organisations change their operational structures to meet shifting market demands, HR teams also need to rethink collaboration across their own disciplines to meet the challenges of reskilling and new ways of working.

Never has the call been stronger for HR to work closely with CEOs and CFOs to shift culture, change fast and adapt our world of work.
