New Zealand insights from our 17th Annual Global CEO Survey
PwC New Zealand
Changes in demographics and the nature of work have made it harder than ever to find and keep the right people - and business leaders are balancing this imperative with cost containment. How are businesses addressing this talent challenge? They’re thinking more strategically about getting the talent pipeline right, focusing more on getting the right information about their workforce and investing more in their people. They’re also doing more to empower staff and improve organisational agility. And importantly, companies are rebuilding trust with society – starting from within, with their employees.
All signs point to digital for New Zealand's entertainment and media industry
It’s digital to the rescue. More dollars from digital consumer and advertising revenues are forecast to offset a declining spend on traditional entertainment and media content.
Partner and digital change specialist Paul Brabin says, "The figures speak for themselves: the digital journey is over and we're now in the age of the digital normal. New Zealanders no longer think about whether content is digital or not and neither should entertainment and media businesses. The world has changed, and New Zealand businesses need to move faster with it and figure out how to make more money from consumers and advertisers."
