What does the future of HR hold?
After everything that has happened in the last two years since the onset of the pandemic, now is a good opportunity to reflect on how HR has changed – and the skills, focus, and setup our profession needs to succeed in the future.
UNLEASH is delighted to share this on-demand session with key experts from Sage’s new report HR in 2030: Five Trends Progressive People Leaders Need To Know To Get Ahead. With contributions from experts including our friends Josh Bersin, Ray Wang, Matt Charney, Perry Timms, Gemma Dale, Dave Milner, Jon Ingham, and many more, this new research holds up an important mirror as HR continues to evolve at pace.
The role of HR is rapidly evolving. [In 2030], HR leaders will be more strategic, visionary, and transformational in enhancing employee engagement and performance management for business continuity.

The report states, “From Personnel, to HR, to People – the function is shifting again towards ‘human’. The HR and People leaders of 2030 will be agile, tech and data-orientated, and with a strong human emphasis. Today, as we emerge from the recent crisis, now is the time for HR leaders to start looking to the future and asking: what’s next?”
Our panelists and report contributors, Jon Ingham Director, Strategic HR Academy and author of ‘The social organisation’ and Dave Milner, Founder and Consulting Partner, HR Curator discussed their take on the answer to this question. They both agreed that context is important – they’ll be different answers for different organizations based on different individual needs and expectations but the five trends highlighted in the report, are certainly important areas where HR needs to know its vision and objectives on, to remain relevant.
As the session began, we asked the audience which of Sage’s five trends they are spending most of their time on today:
Whilst this may be a great signpost for how things are currently, it’s interesting to consider how this might differ in eight years’ time.
It’s clear from Sage’s report, and the discussion had throughout this webinar, that all these trends will remain relevant, as HR continues to emphasize its strategic capabilities and value to the organization – cementing its place as a stakeholder on the decision-making table and a business unit that can provide valuable, data-led insights and evidence-based ways of reaching the goal of what organizations want to be for their people.
As we go into the next few years, it’s important to reflect on what we learned and make sure we take it forward, while employing newly found skills in remote work, well-being, empathy and productivity.
