Pulse Survey Overview

Whether you call it the Great Reset, the Great Reshuffling, or the Great Resignation, we all recognize a huge shift in the global workforce is underway. Organizations — regardless of industry, location or size — are finding it harder and harder to attract and retain talent to meet growth goals, while also adapting to changing employee and societal expectations.

Against the backdrop of this dynamic environment, our next global HR pulse survey focuses on how organizations are evolving their business and people strategies to stay ahead of shifting talent trends. Covered topics include:

  • Reacting and responding to accelerated workforce changes, including quantifying the impact of the Great Resignation and understanding turnover rates among various demographic groups;
  • Enhancing evolving talent acquisition strategies in a competitive market, including adjustments to the hiring process as well as rewards packages;
  • Developing and enhancing strategies to retain talent, including a focus on development, compensation programs and flexible-working practices; and
  • Looking ahead to key HR priorities in 2022, and identifying areas with opportunity for improvement with a people-focus in mind.

There is no fee to join this pulse survey. All participants who provide a complete submission will receive complimentary access to survey results via our online reporting tool. This tool can be used to create custom reports by region, country, industry and essential vs. non-essential businesses.
