Future Models of HR

With Professor Nick Holley

In our final conversation of 2016, we'll share our second piece of research: how HR needs to respond organisationally, and in terms of its capability, to changes in our organisational context.

In 2015, the Henley Centre for HR Excellence celebrated its 10th anniversary. At the same time, the most common model of HR was 18 years old. When Dave Ulrich published Human Resource Champions, without a doubt, it changed our view of HR and its role in business. But many organisations have struggled to make this three-legged model work – and perhaps the time has come to look again at how we organise HR and the implications for HR skill sets. Perhaps the search for a universal model is the problem. Instead, should we be identifying the organisational issues and creating an HR response grounded in this organisational context? Our second piece of research will explore how business will change in the next five years and the implications for HR of trends such as social media and data analytics. We will look at how organisations are changing to reflect this and will identify not a new model but some alternative ways of running and organising HR and the implications for HR capability.
