Global Leadership Forecast 2021

DDI’s Global Leadership Forecast (GLF) is now open! This is our largest research survey ever, and we are particularly excited about our partnership with leading global industry analyst Josh Bersin.

By participating in the survey, you can get a free benchmarking report valued over $50,000 for your organisation, comparing your leaders’ data to others in your region, industry, and top performers.

Participating is simple. The GLF is comprised of 2 surveys. You’ll take the 10-15 minute HR Survey, then you’ll automatically receive a unique link to the Leader Survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete. Just send that link on to your leaders.
