Deloitte’s ninth annual Human Capital Trends report examined future disruptions in human resources, comparing Canadian respondents’ viewpoints against the global average.
Surveys and studies consistently revealed the same results: consumers, especially these from younger generations, want the companies they support to be purpose-driven, with a strong set of corporate social responsibility values at the core of their operations. They also want more than the lip service of glowing mission statements or token philanthropy.
According to Deloitte, the pressure is pushing companies to examine the possibility of becoming social enterprises – organizations that combines revenue growth and profit with the need to respect and support their environment and stakeholders.
A recent report from Deloitte examines disruptions to the workforce, organization, and HR within the emergent context of social enterprise. The 2019 Human Capital Trends report queried 10,000 respondents in 119 countries, including 250 Canadian business and HR leaders.
