#20 HR & OD Trends and Practices: 2011 and Beyond

The fields of Human Resources and Organization Development have evolved in response to changes in the economic, political, social, and technological landscapes of organizations. Recently, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) (2012) published their own predictions for the HROD trends in the coming years. In the Philippines, Ateneo CORD has likewise attempted to keep on top of the trends and challenges facing the HR and OD professions in the country. Results indicate that HR practitioners perceive themselves to be improving in their HR roles. However, the future trends suggest even more drastic changes in HR structures and systems requiring new roles and capabilities. Filipino HR and OD practitioners need to be able to adapt to these if they are to remain relevant contributors to the success of Philippine organizations.
