10 Fundamental Quotes from MIT SMR-Deloitte Research on the Future of the Workforce
Quote 1. The MIT SMR-Deloitte global executive survey and interviews identify the design of opportunity marketplaces as perhaps the key leadership challenge for organizations seeking to ethically maximize human capital returns.
Quote 2. To understand the challenges organizations face managing their workforces as they continue to progress in their digital transformations, MIT Sloan Management Review, in collaboration with Deloitte, conducted its ninth annual survey of nearly 3,900 business executives, managers, and analysts from organizations around the world.
Quote 3. The survey, conducted in the fall of 2019, captured insights from individuals in 126 countries and 28 industries at organizations of various sizes. More than two-thirds of the respondents were from outside the U.S.
Quote 4. MIT SMR-Deloitte research about the future of the workforce offers insight both provocative and disturbing.
Quote 5. There is no agreement or consensus around best practice and there is no shared vision about the future role of average or ordinary workers in tomorrow’s digital enterprise.
Quote 6. We see a profound disconnect between people’s expectations around the value they contribute and their organization’s willingness and ability to invest in them.
Quote 7. A bimodal distribution may be emerging: some organizations seek to make their human resources (even) more transactional and disposable; others are looking hard at how to make better bets on longer-term human capital cultivation and returns.
Quote 8. We see opportunity marketplaces as systems, digital platforms, and virtual places where organizations provide — and workers find — the opportunities most relevant to their mutual benefit and success.
Quote 9. In an effective marketplace, the enterprise offers its workers defined options for professional development, mentorship, project participation, and networking, among others.
Quote 10. Empowered workers, in turn, can choose to pursue those opportunities they most value. Vibrant, robust, and inclusive opportunity marketplaces strategically align both individual and enterprise aspirations. Investment in greater workforce opportunity is seen — and understood — as an investment in greater workforce value creation.
