Editor’s Letter: Looking Ahead

By Belinda Sharr

The future of HR is both uncertain and exciting. We can anticipate change, but we really don’t know what the coming years will bring.Technology constantly develops, and so more HR leaders turn to new ways to recruit, retain, and manage employees in a tech-savvy world.

We at HRO Today Global strive to keep you ahead of the knowledge curve. We are always looking to the future, observing trends, and informing our readers on what they need to know in order to be effective people officers. We also recognise that you may need additional assistance with some time-consuming areas of HR, which is where our annual Global Resource Guide can help. We have lists of hundreds of providers in recruiting, payroll, technology, and more that can help you with your HR needs -now and in the future.

We also believe in education. We hope you will attend (or are possibly reading this very issue at) our HRO Today Forum EMEA on 8-10 November, 2016 in Edinburgh, Scotland. This three-day conference promises to cover topics that those in the industry need to be aware of whilst providing opportunities to network with your like-minded peers who are successfully navigating the HR landscape. Don’t miss exciting and future-forward sessions like “How HR can Build a Vision on Applying Disruptive Technology,” “Tomorrow’s World Today: Competing in the Age of Quests,” and “Learning Transformation: The View is Worth the Climb.” See friends and colleagues as they are honored during the HRO Today Awards Gala, and discuss strategies and skills with them at the HR Topic Tables.

In this issue, you will also find valuable information on the future of talent acquisition in the APAC region and how to stay ahead of the trends; tips on how to manage globally-relocated employees effectively; and a feature on Schneider Electric’s global vice president of talent acquisition and mobility, who oversees the management of more than 185,000 employees in 100 countries.

We are excited about the future of HR. We hope you will continue to join us on this journey, as 2016 ends and 2017 marks a new year of learning, achieving, and growing.
