The Future of Human Resource Management

Human resource management in the 21st century will have little to do with what has been promoted in recent years or decades and written in the textbooks.

Instead of finding “the right people, at the right time and at the right place” we will make the employees and their individual preferences, talents, life plans, and ambitions the focus of attention.

We will say goodbye to mechanistic, technocratic, and often bureaucratic approaches. They fit in a past that was stable and predictable.

If you regard your employees as your most valuable asset, you will give them freedom, trust, and responsibility.

Human resources management will therefore deal less with comprehensive processes, systems, responsibilities, KPIs, etc., in the future. Rather, it will be about how to empower employees to think on their own responsibility, communicate, collaborate, learn, and develop their talents in the long term.
