The future of HR in just three words


OK, HR Professionals: (especially those of you powered up on your return from the CIPD Conference!) Here's your opportunity to address the youth of the nation!

Many of the readers of HR Case Studies are teachers of Advanced Level Business Studies who need a helping hand with that tricky little subject of Human Resources Management.

So, one simple task for you:

What three words would you use to describe the HR Manager of the future?

15 comments:

  1. Flexible, Understanding, Transparent.

    Really enjoyed CIPD09 as well.

  2. Easy one, Human capital management! (Hold your horses everyone, it's not what you may think!)

  3. The HR Manager of the future?

    To the business they should be: Challenging, indispensable and cost effective (hope that can count as one word)!

    To their teams they should be: motivational, supportive and challenging (again)

    To the function they should be: Inspirational, driven and wise

    And what will they be in reality? Probably: Stressed, undervalued and defensive

  8. Stick to getting the admin done properly, do the interviews and stop pretending to be business partners.
