#8 Meeting the HR Challenges of the Future

This study examined the profile of 131 human resources (HR) practitioners in the Philippines. The study showed Filipino HR practitioners are strong in HR functional competencies and process skills such as communication and group facilitation. However, they also report significant gaps in strategic thinking, change management, and organization diagnosis. Level of competence is related to education attainment, job level, and tenure. Job-fit is likewise correlated with career satisfaction and commitment. Areas of HR practice that practitioners wish to pursue more are organization and career development.
