A couple of “food for thought” quotes from Ogilvy Consulting’s recent “The 2030 Forecast” report… an overview of ten predictions for the business world to keep in mind as we all look ahead to “what’s next”:
“The ‘help wanted’ signs won’t be going away anytime soon, even with eight billion people on the planet Earth. The world has plenty of people, but there aren’t enough of them with the right skills.”
As well as…
“The Great Resignation (has) hastened the arrival of a trend that had been building for years, and companies now struggle to attract and retain the talent they need.”
In brief, Ogilvy’s Forecast No. 2 is all about “Talent Scarcity and Workforce Realignment.”
