PwC’s CEO Survey continues to enlighten us about where we need to focus our strategies throughout the remainder of the year and beyond. “As companies look to meet the complicated expectations of stakeholders and society, they will need a new generation of people with an entrepreneurial mindset who can harness technology and drive innovation.” Seventy-eight percent of U.S. CEOs are concerned about the speed of technological change and the availability of key skills to keep up with those changes.

Adopt a Talent Strategy to Remain Innovative

  • Hire the right people. Hire people who are curious, tech savvy, and willing to take risks, and reward them for their vision and creative approach – and work with innovators who don’t want a job but will share their talent on specific projects.
  • Collaborate with innovators. Be open to collaborating with smaller, innovative companies and startups that have the agility you need to infuse into your own culture and process.
  • Bring everyone to the table. Include more than just your management team in envisioning and innovating how you can leverage rapid change to better serve your customers.
