Future Trends for HR. (Advice / on the Web)


Birchfield, Damon, New Zealand Management


I believe it was Bob Dylan who wrote the song "the times they-are-a-changin'", though I'm not so sure he was thinking about human resource management when he wrote it. Still, that great song title certainly holds true for the workplace of today, which is so totally different from that of even 20 years ago that it's hard to believe just how fast things have changed. No one can safely say what the future holds, but here are some web resources from specialists in human resources who should (in theory at least) know more than most. Besides concern for the future there's one other thing that seems to bind all these hypotheses together: that change is inevitable and constant.

www.themanager.org/knowledgebase/ HR/Future.htm This is a great site for all managers to know about, not just those interested specifically in HR. Here you'll find the best of what the web has to offer in the way of free information about the future of HR (the best I could find at least). Essentially the site works as a links page. There's a range of headers on a variety of topics about the future of HR; simply click on the title you are interested in and it will link through to the story wherever it's sourced off the web. Some examples of papers on offer include "The Future of Work", "Trends and Challenges for work in the 21st Century", "Creating a Next Generation Workforce", and "Advanced Information Technologies". They all looked interesting. A warning before you search the page however, on the day I was looking a number of the links didn't work.

www.reportfinder.com This website works as a report database, with the reports charged on a per page basis ($9.95 per page, presumably US dollars). When you get to the site's homepage, search on "the future of human resources". You should get a selection of about 10 reports, some of which look interesting. Topics range from "The Large Obstacles faced by Small Business" (this one would appear relevant for New Zealand companies), to more generic titles such as "Human Resources in the Future". Reports are delivered via your inbox the same day, with the site purporting to have 20,000 reports on offer.
