In a year filled with turbulence and turmoil, millions of businesses around the world faced challenges and disruption unlike ever before. Yet despite the prevalence of global tumult, there were some organizations that prevented major financial losses and maintained business continuity. How? By practicing—and committing to—talent optimization strategies.

In February 2021, The Predictive Index surveyed over 500 executives from businesses spanning a wide variety of industries across the globe. Respondents were first asked to answer two simple—yet compelling—questions:

  • “Did your company have a reduction in force last year? If so, what percentage of your workforce was laid off due to COVID-19?”
  • “How many people is your company planning to hire in 2021?”

The team at Predictive Index analyzed and evaluated all responses before compiling the following E-Book, which sheds light on the effectiveness of talent optimization strategies and how companies were able to stay afloat despite the pandemic and ensuing economic downturn.
