2022 opens on the slow gradient of recovery. The crisis of the pandemic may not be over, but businesses and economies are coming back to a better middle ground: learning not only to live with the exigencies of the situation, but better yet, learning the adaptability and resilience to respond successfully to change. This year may not be a year of growth, but it's surely a year of acceleration – acceleration of the positive changes that have been building momentum throughout the crisis.
This month, we bring you predictions and projections for the trends that will dominate the coming year. We hear from Obed Louissaint, Senior Vice President of Transformation and Culture at IBM; Charise Le, Chief Human Resources Office of Schneider Electric; Betsy Sutter, Chief People Officer of VMware; Ravi Venkatesan, the former Chairman of Microsoft India; and more. We examine hot topics such as the employee value proposition during a talent shortage, skilling to fill the talent gap, and the critical issue of well-being.
We have the opportunity to launch 2022 on an optimistic note. This year, let's look towards our aspirations for work and the workplace.
