  2. Developing leadership skills that align with the changing workplace

  3. Continuous learning opportunities and credentialing for employees to achieve professional goals

  4. Use of big data and predictive analytics for employment decision making

  5. The desire for flexibility and work-life integration

  6. Developing a talent base that is capable and wants to work globally

  7. Diversity hiring and employing marginalized populations as companies strive to remain competitive in a global marketplace
