Changing role of hr in the future of work

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.
