Winning the war for talent requires a holistic, personalized and flexible approach to human capital management

With the unemployment rate stable at five percent and newly minted college graduates changing the demographics of the U.S. workforce, employers need to rethink their approach to human capital management. The Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (Gallagher) 2016 Human Capital Insights & Strategies Report provides employers with original perspectives from 28 thought leaders on how to engage employees, develop competitive benefit plans and control costs in order to attract and retain the best talent in today’s competitive labor market.

“Traditional healthcare and retirement plans are no longer differentiators; they’re table stakes,” said James W. Durkin, Jr., President, Gallagher Benefit Services, Inc.  “As workplace demographics shift to favor younger generations – who prioritize non-traditional benefits like flexible schedules and wellbeing programs – it’s important for employers to take a more holistic and personalized approach to designing their benefit, compensation and reward programs. To win the war for talent as an employer of choice, organizations need to think about their employees as individuals and offer flexible options that appeal not only to a range of generations, but also different personalities and work styles.”
