The 7 HR Trends Dominating 2017

Keeping up to date with workplace trends can be tough. After all, every day new technologies emerge that can rapidly impact the way company’s do business. From Slack and the need to manage virtual teams spread across the country, to smaller changes like better data management systems that seemingly pop up overnight, it’s increasingly hard for businesses to keep their ultra-competitive edge.

HR is no different. In fact, HR plays an integral part in all of these shifts. After all, it’s HR that has to house employee data, onboard new staff, figure out what benefits will attract and retain talent, and make sure that the company’s workforce is planned properly.

This is all while having to maintain the day-to-day tasks that come with HR leadership like performing training sessions and attending to the needs of various employees as they arise.

To help you stay current, we’ve compiled this handy infographic that touches upon the top seven trends in the HR space.

Some are familiar—the increasing importance of data-driven management systems, for example—and some are shockingly important yet under reported, like the need for transparency and how to manage a multi-generational workforce dominated by Baby Boomers and Millennials.
