What is the Gartner HR trends and priorities report?

This annual report is derived from the Gartner HR Priorities Survey, which polls chief human resources officers (CHROs) and HR leaders on common challenges and asks them to rank their top priorities for the year ahead. This report is designed to offer HR leadership teams a better understanding of emerging HR trends and insight into what their peers are focussing on in the year ahead to help drive strategy for the HR function.

This year, Gartner received responses from more than 800 HR leaders across 60 countries and all major industries. Forty-one per cent of participants were CHROs or heads of HR.
