Preparing for the future in HR Management.

But it’s not about cutting the humans from Human Resources.

Never before in human history has change been making its presence felt more acutely. Tools such as AI, which were once firmly believed to be science fiction are now in common use in workplaces everywhere and companies are feeling the pressure to keep up.

Whilst industry forges forward, the relevance of effective HR policy is more important than ever. AI can certainly uncomplicate some aspects of work, but the human aspect, the part of a company at its heart driving productivity will remain in human hands for some time. But change begets more change and to remain effective human managers, we will also need to modify how we operate to address new challenges.

Futurists everywhere have been discussing how HR will need to evolve as we lean into the future, so we scanned through the reports and compiled a list four key aspects of the HR environment that will remain pertinent for businesses, whatever we may encounter.


Culture will remain a key function of HR as we move toward the future, and a very important one. It is the key driver of a successful workplace, giving workers a reason to give their best every day. Workplace culture is designed entirely by those within it and will remain a priority to maintain well.

Labour Hire

Labour hire has already started shifting into an AI workspace with automated onboarding already a possibility for some companies. However, automation cannot replace people entirely in this scenario. We, as people, need to ensure that the goals of a company are communicated and met efficiently. The importance of ensuring a correct personality fit for your team is something that only a person can do with any certainty.

Shifting Capabilities

Shifting Capabilities of a company is something that HR needs to consider as a growing company needs to assess what is important to their future. Making a hire won’t only focus on filling a staff gap in the future. Companies will need to anticipate future labour needs and HR reps will be identifying them in their hire prospects to future proof their working team.

Organisational Alignment

Organisational Alignment is set to become a prime HR goal. HR teams will be tasked with continually reassessing how they can realign an organization, making sure that all involved are adding competitive value. Asking what a company’s specific strategy is and aligning themselves with that will make HR teams a more business-driven aspect of a team, but one that will be able to provide relevant and competent advice to enable growth.

Focusing on these four aspects of your HR strategy is by no means a foolproof method for success, but they do provide a focus for us as we navigate into the future.
