Technology is disrupting all areas of an organization, including the role of human resources.
The role of an HR manager has evolved stupendously from being a ‘Labour Manager’ back in the 19th century, to a ‘Human Resource Management System’ in the current world. Today, an HR’s role has shifted from being a mere personnel to becoming a ‘Strategic Business Partner’ to help organisations emerge as Digital workplaces. Employers want HR to address strategic issues involving the competitiveness and performance of the firm, a big leap from the role of a protector and administrator.
HR is shifting from focussing on organisation of the business to focussing on Business of the organization.
