HR Future Trends

Businesses must have a strategic HR function in place to harness the power of their people and culture. So, what lies ahead for HR? To answer this, we asked a panel of global people leaders what they thought about the future of their function:

  • Former CHRO at a U.K.-based financial services firm
  • Peter Collyer, CPO at Ted Baker
  • Sharon Doherty, CPO at Finastra
  • Ann Pickering, former CHRO and Chief of Staff at O2 UK
  • Jennifer Mancuso, Vice President of HR at North Highland
  • Group Rewards Director at a global beverage company
  • CHRO at a healthcare company
  • Vice President of HR at an agriculture and manufacturing company

Our panel helped define the key trends that will impact HR in the years ahead across several areas:

  • Culture, governance, and ethics
  • Leading with purpose
  • Technology and people
  • Continuous transformation
  • Skills of the future
