To illustrate that fact, the 2018 Deloitte Human Capital Trends report found that C-Suite collaboration was the number one human capital issue identified by 51% of 11,000 respondents in their worldwide survey. The Deloitte report went on to say that they found high-level executives were working in silos and not communicating with other senior managers with any substance or regularity.
