Talent Climate Index

Stormy times or sunny prospects??

Talent management is affected by changes and trends – just like the general economic situation. Profil M regularly cooperates with Prof. Dr. Klaus P. Stulle of Fresenius University to analyse the “Talent Climate Index”. This allows us to provide you with regular information about developments in internal and external labour markets, as well as the key trends in talent management in organisations that operate on an international scale. What are the current and future tendencies regarding the options for acquiring talent internally or externally? How well prepared are organisations to utilise these developments effectively? How do managers and HR experts assess the extent of the stakeholders’ commitment? The Talent Management Index uses five key questions as the basis for a pertinent analysis of the current situation and trend forecasts in talent management. The survey focuses on a representative selection of companies and is carried out at regular intervals. Take the opportunity to give us your assessment of the situation and development of Talent Management in your company.

Current TKI results for the first half of 2019

Continued easing of the situation on the talent market: For the second time in a row, the talent climate has clearly set itself apart from the previous downward trend. It is thus moving back roughly to the level of the first data collection in 2016. This is not only due to more optimistic forecasts for the future, but also to an already perceived improvement in the talent situation. However, this should not hide the fact that approximately half of those surveyed still rate the talent situation to be poor.

The presumed priorities of the generations are confirmed in reality: The priorities of talents actually shown in professional decisions correspond to the wishes of the generations expressed in many studies to a large extent. These have shifted significantly across generations. When comparing the oldest generation ("Baby Boomers") with the youngest ("Generation Z"), the priorities are almost reversed. Traditional external factors, such as income, job security, and status, contrast with new priorities, such as work-life balance, learning opportunities, and meaningful work.

The proportion of younger generations is higher in external recruiting: When filling vacancies with internal staff, almost 50 percent of candidates selected are members of Generation X and the Baby Boomer generation, while talents recruited from the external labor market are younger. Generation Y and Z account for a total of 62 percent here.
