Talent strategy: Human capital diagnostic

Develop resilient workers that drive results in tough times.

Develop resilient workers that drive results in tough times

A KPMG Human Capital Diagnostic can help you assess employee resilience and build a workforce that thrives in evolving circumstances.

As companies face economic uncertainty, they must confront the trends affecting their workforce. A recent survey found that 91% of U.S. executives believe there will be a recession in the next 12 months.1 73% of organizations are also concerned about their ability to retain talent due to inflation and an increase in the cost of living.2 To reduce stress on the business, organizations should invest in building workforce resilience so they can drive profitability in difficult times.

A KPMG Human Capital Diagnostic (HCD) can enable your company to discover talent opportunities and risks across the six levers that impact employees the most. Your leaders will be able to measure the health of your workforce and understand key areas that affect talent attraction and retention. HCD analyzes both internal and external factors for insights on the overall talent lifecycle to help you plan for the future. We can provide a clear assessment of the talent gaps that exist within your organization’s unique business context and your workforce programs.
