The future of Human Resources is literally a blank slate! Things are changing at a dramatic, almost alarming, rate. Issues may include globalization of the workforce, the changing generational workforce, compensation issues, work-life balance issues, or just the realization that Congress is in session and new legislation may change the workplace dramatically.
