Recommendation

As the world’s biggest HR organization, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) moves slowly. It takes years to adopt terms and accept positions that smaller, more dynamic think tanks and thought leaders introduce. This SHRM report offers well-researched, credible and dependable conclusions from a global survey of HR professionals and leaders and non-HR senior executives. getAbstract recommends this manual and its valuable sidebars by HR experts, practitioners and academics. Many of the writers deliver worthy original insights. Be sure to notice, for example, Kari Strobel’s description of the new HR competencies. Human resource professionals and HR or non-HR leaders will benefit from this report.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What HR and non-HR leaders rate as the most important challenges facing HR, now and over the coming decade; and
  • What new competencies HR professionals and leaders need to contribute to modern business and strategy.

Summary

A Promising Future for the HR Profession

In 2014 and 2014, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) conducted global surveys that generated responses from 439 HR professionals and leaders and 485 non-HR senior executives. Two-thirds of senior executives who don’t work in HR state that they believe in HR’s strategic role; more than 70% of non-HR executives anticipate a broader role for HR in the future. This is especially true in organizations of 25,000 employees or more. Two-thirds of HR respondents from such companies say that HR transformation – the change from being transactional to being strategic – is a primary challenge.
