Description

If you read business articles about HR, it can be pretty depressing: HR does not get a seat at the table when leaders create strategies; HR is cast in a support and service relationship to the business; the function should be eliminated, done by people in operations or blown up altogether. However, that situation is about to change.

HR
  professionals will  soon  be  called  upon  to  deal  with a host of known-unknowns – things we know that we do not know – which will have a huge impact on work and the global workforce by the middle of the century.

Seven shifts will affect companies in the near term. Look closely and you can
see them happening soon.

With the publication of his book on human development, Measure of Man, as well as a white
  paper  for ASEAN human development needs, Bob Aubrey will speak to AmCham members on the known-unknowns of HR and how to prepare HR as a strategic stakeholder leader.
