The outlook of HR (Human Resources) in business today

It is far simpler to think, envision, and write about utopia than it is to make it a reality. Ralph Christensen opted to enter the realm of practice thirty years ago, when many of us chose to pursue academic careers and live more in the world of ideas. To be candid, he was and continues to be one of the top thinkers in the business and he has consistently shown his ability to translate ideas into action.

Human resources experts have been drumming the drum of change for decades: HR must evolve from an administrative role to a strategic business partner. However, the message has been repeated so often and for so long, and with so little solid, real-world information on how to really accomplish this new purpose, that it frequently seems like a would-it-be-nice situation.

Human resource management is evolving, and an increasing number of professionals recognize that in order to thrive in the future, they must be a member of the team that makes critical business choices.
