How can organisations thrive in a complex world of risk?
This regional report explores the risks and challenges organisations currently face, and how talent is now key to leveraging the digital advances we depend upon for growth and value creation. Specific to respondents across Europe, the report is based on data from our 2022 global report, Strengthening the human-centric core of Industry 5.0. Additional insights from Boyden experts in various sectors across the region help form a nuanced picture of the European leadership and executive talent landscape. As Industry 5.0 gains momentum, our research shows that this era needs people-focused leadership; driving change, inspiring teams and empathy will strengthen the human-centric core of Industry 5.0. Human capital and digital capabilities need to be further aligned to maximise their potential, jointly and separately.
It is also an era defined by geopolitical risk, economic volatility and rising costs. Maximising the skills and capabilities of boards, leaders, executives and teams is an on-going priority as human ingenuity drives us forward.
European respondents remain distinguished by their sharper focus on tech and digital capabilities, with growth and cultural shifts driven by innovation, and structural change driven by digital advances. The top challenge within the organisation is staying on top of digital transformation.
