Accenture Life Trends 2024

03/01/2024 - Accenture 

Half of people globally are significantly altering their life goals, prioritizing job stability and retirement more than marriage or getting a college degree, and another 48% of people make plans for their lives less than 12 months ahead, or don’t plan at all, finds Accenture’s 17th annual Life Trends report.

This shift in mindset — brought on in part by the rapid advance of technology — is putting society in flux and creating a level of uncertainty and fragility for businesses as people are now deconstructing everything in their lives, as they try to figure out their place in the world.

“We’re entering a decade of deconstruction spurred on by changing consumer values, AI’s explosive growth and the relentless speed of change,” said Mark Curtis, global sustainability lead for Accenture Song. “This is causing business leaders to ask, ‘where do we begin?’ in the face of these challenges. It starts with a clarion call for excellence and giving the pursuits of human ingenuity and creativity space to flourish.”

Learn about the five global macro-cultural trends predicted to revolutionise how business and leaders remain relevant to their customers whiles accelerating growth in the Accenture Life Trends 2024 report. Read the report online or via Accenture’s thought leadership app, Accenture Foresight.
