Rising Stars 2019

What is the future of HR?

It’s a question that dominates the thoughts of many in the field today. Businesses are continually looking for ways to improve their HR processes, and any professional who’s been in the field more than a few years has likely seen a few trends come and go already. Most of them tout themselves to be the magic bullet that changes HR forever. Companies and thought leaders on both the creator and consumer sides of the equation alike stake their careers on such purported innovations, with predictably variable results. Tech will come and go within the field, but people remain eternal.

No one doubts the valuable role that tech and automation can play in streamlining day-to-day processes – but perhaps the better question to ask is who is the future of HR? After all, HR is an enterprise that inherently concerns people.

From recruitment through to pet food, it’s intriguing to see the differences – and similarities – that arise over different industries. Read on to get an insight into the next generation of HR in Australia.
