Trends by Function: Human Resources

Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key human resources trends for 2021.

Human resources faced bigger challenges in 2020 than nearly any other function—from right-sizing workforces and keeping employees safe to adjusting to the widespread shift to remote work. As companies seek to reopen offices and plot resourcing for the new normal, HR leaders require independent experts in everything from organizational design and compensation strategy to technology implementations—as well as interim leadership to fill gaps in critical roles.
