Talent Trends for 2020 and Beyond

With a workforce that is constantly changing and evolving, it is important to stay on top of ever-changing talent management trends as a Human Resources manager and leader. We have pulled together three important and timely talent trends that every company must take note of in order to stay competitive in 2020 and beyond.

On to the Next

Research shows that the millennial workforce is consistently looking to make moves. Whether that comes in the form of a new job, a promotion, or another internal move, they are craving change. A recent study by Korn Ferry shows that 88 percent of professionals believe frequent job switches will have a positive impact on their careers. Employees need to see the opportunity for growth within the company if you want to have any chance of retaining your talent.


The way we work is changing every day. Think of all the ways we are currently adapting to make it through the global COVID-19 pandemic. Because of constant disruption, both employers and employees must be adaptable for the future of work. The reskilling of employees and continuous transformation are both important for a company to be successful in this time of constant change. An example of the importance of reskilling and transformation is the popularization of collaborative robots in industrial and manufacturing settings. The side by side collaboration between employees and automation will help turnaround times, supply chain management, and workplace safety. If these times have taught us anything, it's that the way we work can change at the drop of a hat, and adaptability is a must.

Employer Branding

Does your company have a brand? If the brand isn't immediately obvious to you, the answer is no and it's time to cultivate one. A company's reputation, values, and popularity make up its employer brand. The stronger the employee brand, the more successful a company will be with talent acquisition and employee retention. To create a strong employer brand, it's important to implement an employer branding strategy to take control of the dialogue about your company and market your company as a great and positive workplace.
