The Professional Services sector is undoubtedly one of the most challenging business spheres as it is predominantly driven by one core truth: You are only as good as your people.
There are some hiring challenges that are common to all industries, like keeping pace with evolving technology and coping with a talent shortage in a strong job market. The Professional Services industry, however, comes with its own unique set of challenges that competitive organizations must face in addition to the broader issues mentioned above. How to build a distinctive Human Capital Model which allows to not only attract but also to retain the best people, is pivotal.
Along with the strong growth of the business, the increased demand for professional up-skilling and development into new topics as well as the need to adapt to changing organizational structures and functions, will have a massive impact on careers in professional services companies.
A multi-generational workforce has profound implications for how employers need to manage talent and engagement, especially given the necessity to promote, reinforce and foster diversity and inclusion.
Clients are asking for true partnership in collaborating with their advisors, expecting to receive impulses and best in class solutions in a fast-evolving business world dominated by new business models, technological disruption, and increased global competition.
