Seeking Digital Leaders

Companies are seeking the talent that can lead them through digital transformation.

“ACTUALIZING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION” tops the agenda of global business leaders in 2019, according to Executive Talent 2025, a survey by the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC).

Furthermore, the study finds that executives are increasingly realizing that achieving digital transformation will require the right talent to foster that transformation. As a result, companies are looking to the next generation of talent to create an Industry 4.0 business environment.

When it comes to attracting top talent, business leaders say their No. 1 challenge is demonstrating that their workplaces offer employees a strong value proposition. The greatest challenge to retaining that talent is providing enough growth and development.

The AESC study identifies opportunities for business leaders to assess how their talent strategy aligns with their digital transformation goals. It also suggests ways organizations can attract diverse talent and develop the next generation of leaders.
