A Study in Paradox

In early 2023, GP Strategies surveyed over 2,000 employees and people leaders across the globe to get an outlook on current career development perspectives.

As the data was analyzed, four paradoxical themes emerged with seemingly contradictory messages—all of which are true.

This report explores those four key paradoxes and draws comparisons across global regions and prior GP Strategies research studies on the same topics.

Readers will discover:

  • How organizations can attract and keep the best talent.
  • Current paradoxical attitudes about career.
  • Implications of the four emerging themes.
  • Next steps for L&D teams to future-proof their leadership strategy and support employee development.
