Lean too much to one side and the light fades.

No one knows this more than HR, whose role has been propelled to the centre stage since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a balancing act between the needs of employees and of the business as HR leads, guides and directs companies through the pandemic towards success. 


Mercer’s Global Talent Trends 2022 studies show that these are the top 3 challenges faced by organisations as they navigate change:


• Too many competing priorities

• Employee exhaustion / burn-out

• Inadequate workforce skill


As new trends continue to emerge, HR leaders are refocusing their priorities and reassessing their strategies on what will deliver the most impactful results.
