What a pleasure it was to take in the HRPA conference this year. I ran to and fro absorbing all I could and chatting with HR professionals about their worlds and ideas and priorities. I came out exhausted and saturated with information and, yes, even inspired by the sandbox I’m now working in.
HR is truly in a period of flux. Even as we witness the uptick in contract work and changing employment situations, the balance of power is quietly swinging towards an uncompromising Millennial talent pool with a whole new set of expectations. Combined with the hallucinatory development of new technologies, it looks like we’re in the middle of a veritable revolution in the way people work and live and produce.
It’s an interesting time to be thinking about HR, suffice to say.
