The Profession Formerly Known as HR

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference

Drawing on a decade of research on the evolution of work and the HR profession, John Boudreau will take a provocative look 10 years into the future where: work is boundaryless and beyond employment, global connectedness democratizes the work ecosystem, and exponential technological change means breakthrough analytics and human-machine collaboration.  It is a future rich with opportunities for HR leaders to change the world.  Yet, it is also a future that will require tectonic shifts in the very concept of HR and the definition of our profession. Learn about the future of HR.
