Managing workforce risk in an era of unpredictability and disruption

Thought Leadership Team

Oxford Economics

Oxford Economics surveyed 875 global executives to understand their view of workforce risks and the steps they are taking to identify and minimize those risks. Our research found that C-suite officials are aware of the critical nature of workforce risk but feel inadequate in managing and addressing it.

We identified a Leader group of executives that is outperforming others when it comes to defining, measuring, and monitoring workforce risk. Our leaders understand workforce risk better than others, use a variety of risk management tools and practices, and are reaping the benefits of their efforts.

The experts behind the research

Our Thought Leadership team produces original, evidence-based research made accessible to decision-makers and opinion leaders. Principals for this project included:
