2023 Shin Research: Exploring Talent and Leadership Trends

A research scholarship program designed to stimulate original, theoretical research on practical industry issues.

In 2023, the Shin Research Program began a long-term initiative focused on deepening our understanding of talent and leadership trends. The objective of this first report is to gather the perspectives of senior human resource leaders on how the industry can address its talent gap.
The analysis examined the industry’s talent gap and found that Human Resource leaders are responding to a rapidly changing technological environment by increasingly looking for new candidates that have technical capacity over pre-existing technicalfluency. New workers should also have a sense of broadness: a curious mind that can see the big picture and understand howtheir role connects to the broader mission of the company.

We will be validating the findings from the interviews used for the analysis in future studies. In particular, our focus will be investigating the differences in perspective between HR leaders and Senior Executives. Future analyses will be positioned forthe Shin Program to continuously educate the industry by tracking key trends in talent management annually.
