HR has been headed into an unrelenting storm. Transforming HR has been the focus for the past few years. It makes you wonder: where are we headed and when will we get there? Then again, maybe you are already there. I do know that there is no one size that fits all. Best practices, while good to be aware of, are not the silver bullet.
- The economic environment (which includes the organization’s financial situation as well as the competitive and general economic environment).
- The technological environment has disrupted our entire society. How do we play in the new environment?
- The social/cultural environment.
- The sustainability environment (what is your organizations strategy and how does that align with your people?).
- The regulatory and legislative environment. New taxes, new health care laws will be felt for years to come.
