Tomorrow’s HR World explored in new whitepaper series from ADP
20 June 2012: ADP, one of the world’s largest providers of HR and Payroll solutions has launched the first in a new series of whitepapers that look at what the world of HR will be like in the next decade. The series, called ‘Tomorrow’s HR World’, uses industry analysis, research, as well as academic and industry thinking to give HR Directors and senior HR practitioners the information they need to plan for their organisations’ future. Copies of the whitepaper are available at the ADP stand (H70) at this year’s HR Software Show, as well as on-line at www.uk.adp.com.
The first whitepaper in the series looks at the role of the HR Director within organisations and how it is likely to change. It considers how advancing communications systems are likely to take an even more central role for businesses and their staff, allowing extensive and sophisticated remote working and a further evolution in working practices and habits. The ageing population and the international nature of companies are likely to further shake up the traditional employer-employee dynamic, while the aftermath of the 2008 credit crisis is likely to cast a long shadow over the evolution of business in the next 10 years. All these affect the HR Director and their team.
The whitepaper will examine all these themes in a practical and accessible way, offering food for thought for HR Directors and senior HR practitioners. In the coming months further whitepapers will be published that look at the changing workforce and how this will impact on the role of the HR function.
Commenting on the publication of Tomorrow’s HR World, Don McGuire, Managing Director, ADP UK said: “HR Directors have always had to deal with change, either from within the organisation or from external factors such as economic, demographic or societal changes. Over the last few years, technology, the ageing workforce and the rise of the ‘millennial’ generation has significantly changed the way organisations recruit, manage their staff and plan for the future. The rate of change will not slow down and this series of whitepapers is designed to give HR Directors the insight they need to stay ahead of the game.”
