    The predictions are in. Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP has published Predictions for 2013: Corporate Talent, Leadership and HR-Nexus of Global Forces Drives New Models for Talent. You can view the entire report here.

    The findings of the research reported confirm that we are experiencing a skills gap. The research further finds that leaders recognize a need to develop their leadership pipeline and cite this as a critical obstacle to growth. Additionally, the findings show that organizations have struggled to attract and engage those in their 20s and early 30s. So the prediction is a need for HR to focus on Learning, Leadership and Planning.

    More specifically, some of the things identified as having high importance according to research with senior leaders are the following:

    • Retaining Key Employees
    • Leadership Bench Strength
    • Identifying Talent Gaps
    • Manager Capabilities to Develop Employees
    • Filling Talent Gaps
    • Promoting Career Development
    • Building a High Impact Learning Organization

    The critical needs according to the prediction are in talent management and development. How do these line up with your current skill set within your HR team? Is your team ready for this? Or do you have a skill gap in the very team that should be championing this within the organization? If the answer is no, now might be the time to adjust your goals for 2013. HR needs talent management too!
