Overview

In the future, will human resource management emerge as an even more critical factor in developing and maintaining a company's competitive edge, or will it become just one more outsourced function overseen by managers busy juggling several other responsibilities at the same time? Will HR departments buckle under the constant pressure to do more with less, or will inspired leaders develop practices that link HR to overall business strategies and improved organizational capabilities? Tomorrow's HR Management is about creating the future right in your own company—adapting to meet the needs of your enterprise and the demands of a changing business environment.

In this remarkably visionary volume, 48 of the most perceptive and imaginative HR executives, consultants, and scholars from around the world offer their views on the future of the field and prescribe courses of action that will help CEOs and HR managers shape that future. Each of the book's six sections advocates a strategic goal designed to increase HR's productivity, efficiency, and adaptability. Each chapter analyzes obstacles and formulates tactics designed to help reach these goals. This book helps HR managers and business leaders to:

  • Manage HR like a business—define and deliver clear outcomes
  • Play new roles in the competitive environment of the future
  • Prepare for the future
  • Build an infrastructure and discover how to measure progress
  • Remember the human in Human Resources
  • Go global through advances in technology.
