It is based on a close collaboration
between The Boston Consulting
Group (BCG) and the World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA).
BCG has worked closely with leading
companies around the world on a
wide range of HR issues, helping
with HR strategy, management, KPIs,
and strategic workforce planning.
BCG has assisted its clients in managing talent, organizing HR functions, managing performance, redeploying the workforce, and managing
demographic risk. It has also helped
companies establish shared service
centers and outsourcing arrangements.
WFPMA and its member associations have worked to enhance the
quality of HR management and to
develop and elevate professional
standards. Through its programs, HR
executives have opportunities to garner insights and exchange ideas that
enhance corporate and personal capabilities in HR.
We believe that our ﬁndings will
appeal to HR professionals and senior business executives alike. On
the basis of the positive feedback
from our previous reports, we plan
to continue our regular research in
HR issues. C P A Acknowledgments
