Leadership Development

The research objectives are:

  • Define today’s critical drivers of leadership development (the problem)

  • Understand leading practices in leadership development (the answer)

  • Explore how organizations are assessing, developing, and sustaining leadership (how to get there)


Hiring and Internal Mobility

Our previous research has revealed that organizations still have challenges attracting quality talent and still experience talent shortages. The primary goal of this survey is to help organizations turn this issue around and improve the way in which they fill open positions, even when faced with talent shortages.

Our survey will provide an in-depth exploration of why organizations are still facing these issues, how to best overcome these challenges, and best practices for hiring quality talent, including assessments, outreach to talent communities, universities and associations, and the use of mobility practices.


Talent Acquisition Analytics

Never before has there been more focus on making data-driven business decisions across all of Human Capital Management. And, now due to advancements in talent acquisition technology, predictive and prescriptive analytics are available to help expedite and improve decisions. Some examples of those analytics include likelihood of employment tenure, likelihood for time-to-fill, and more.

This is the opportunity for you to share your organization’s practices, attitudes, and expectations for these metrics by participating in this survey. This survey will also explore the potential impact of technology on talent acquisition predictive and prescriptive analytics for decision-making and organizational performance.


Succession Management

Succession Management is a critical conduit to strong leadership capability and a sustained and thriving competitive position. Yet, many companies struggle to create and sustain a pipeline of high-potentials for critical roles. This survey seeks to learn how organizations are progressing in navigating this treacherous terrain, and what steps organizations need to take to improve. The goal is for organizations to benchmark themselves against this data so they can create a better path forward.
