A new context for enterprises
Larry Fink is the CEO of BlackRock, one of the world’s largest asset managers. His 2018 letter to the CEOs of BlackRock portfolio companies is emblematic of the context faced by 21st century enterprises: Its call for purposeful capitalism is an acknowledgement of powerful underlying forces. Millennials, who are 50% of the US workforce and growing, are voting with their feet and wallets for companies that have purpose. Technology puts enterprises on the front line of: automation, with 400-800 million related job losses by 2025; job growth, with a steep 55% rise in demand for technology work by 2030; and nimble tech-enabled attackers who have, for example, decimated traditional retail and created a USD 150 billion financial services startup (Ant Financial) seemingly overnight. With 84% of the S&P 500s value made up of intangible assets, modern enterprises are all about brain, not brawn.
In this context, more than ever, a successful enterprise needs to master agility, collaborate with multi-channel stakeholders, drive employee engagement, foster cultural cohesion, and embrace technology. However, none of this is easy. Factor in a growing bias for independent work, 50% of the US workers are expected to be freelancers by 2030, coupled with a dismally low 15% of employees engaged at work, where enterprises are not trusted by employees to ‘do the right thing’ for displaced workers. Now add in an existing ~20% gap in supply of tech and other critical talent. There is a war for top talent across the board, and enterprises need to reimagine how to acquire, retain, develop, excite and exit talent and skills for this new context.
