The Human Capital Agenda in EMEA

Strategies for Sustainable Growth

We are pleased to release the seventh edition of the Human Capital Agenda in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). This year’s publication brings together 20 articles by Mercer experts and human resources professionals from leading organisations headquartered in Europe or operating in the EMEA region.

The business context for HR in 2015 will continue to be uncertain. The one constant is the volatile, changing, and ambiguous environment in which our businesses serve customers, give returns to shareholders, and employ talent. In order to align with business strategy, best-practice HR organisations must reinvent their policies and operations to underpin sustainable business growth.
