Randstad Sourceright, a global talent leader, today announced availability of its "2016 Talent Trends Report," a comprehensive guide to 30 of the most important trends impacting the world of talent, employees and business this year.

The Randstad Sourceright 2016 Talent Trends Report was developed with the feedback and outlooks of nearly 400 HR, talent and business leaders spanning more than 60 countries. Randstad Sourceright uncovered that the single most challenging talent management issue of today is the lack of critical talent and the resulting impact on business, as well as a company's leadership and succession pipeline.

"We found that talent leaders everywhere face growing challenges to acquire the resources needed to power their business. To help them better navigate market developments, our 2016 Talent Trends Report delivers the insights, peer input and expert advice they need to win and retain must-have talent," said Ron Bosma, Managing Director, Randstad Sourceright EMEA.

  • 85 percent of respondents believe an integrated talent management approach encompassing permanent and contingent talent will enhance the resources available for business growth.
  • The use of talent and workforce analytics continues to increase, with 73 percent using this data to create more efficient workforce planning.
  • When asked about the biggest trends impacting the future of work in the next 5 to 10 years, the top responses were the need to create greater flexible working options to attract mobile talent, the ability to analyze internal and external employee data to source and retain talent and the challenge of keeping pace with evolving technology.
