By following a structured recruitment process, organizations can minimize hiring risks, improve retention rates, and build a talented workforce that supports their strategic objectives.

  109. In the realm of HR, I foresee several trends emerging in the near future. Firstly, there will likely be a continued emphasis on employee well-being and mental health support, as organizations recognize the importance of fostering a positive work environment. Additionally, remote work and hybrid work models will persist, prompting HR departments to refine their strategies for managing distributed teams and maintaining employee engagement. Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives will also remain at the forefront, with companies prioritizing efforts to create more inclusive workplaces. Lastly, the use of technology, such as AI and automation, will continue to reshape HR processes, streamlining tasks like recruitment, onboarding, and performance management.

  110. Remote work & flexibility

    3. Advanced Employee Experience
    4. Digital transformation
    Sustainability & Corporate social Responsibility…….

  111. While I don’t have real-time updates, as of my last knowledge update in January 2022, I can provide insights into some HRM trends that were anticipated to shape the future of Human Resource Management (HRM). Keep in mind that the evolution of trends may have continued beyond my last update. Here are some trends that were gaining traction:

    Remote Work and Hybrid Models:

    The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of remote work. Even as things return to normal, many organizations were expected to continue with remote or hybrid work models. HRM would focus on strategies for managing distributed teams effectively, fostering collaboration, and maintaining employee engagement in virtual environments.
    Employee Well-being:

    Organizations were increasingly recognizing the importance of employee well-being. HRM trends were shifting towards creating supportive environments, offering mental health resources, and implementing policies that prioritize work-life balance.
    Digital Transformation:

    The integration of technology into HR processes, known as HR Tech, was on the rise. Automation of repetitive tasks, the use of AI for recruitment and employee management, and the implementation of data analytics for better decision-making were expected to become more prevalent.
    Focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI):

    Organizations were placing a stronger emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. HRM was expected to play a crucial role in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace, including fair hiring practices, training programs, and ongoing evaluation of policies.

  112. The sessions has been impactful so far so the HR trend I see coming up in the future is the data and analytics trend

  113. This has been very enlightening so far, I particularly learnt the evolving nature of human resource management and how important it is to keep up with this nature like knowing the strategic differentiators

  114. From the generation quest and ability to look ahead, The Human Resources Management soon becoming Artificial Intelligence Management in order to save resources and time

  115. I see Artificial Intelligence incorporated into Human Resource Management and also, the need for HR to acquire strategic skills that aid psychological safety at work, especially in a world of remote work and multicultural teams.

  116. Prioritizing flexible working arrangements to better accommodate employees. A happy and healthy workforce enhances productivity and reduces turnover.

  117. A future trend of HR might be the use of AI to track workers performance and optimal areas at the workplace which could lead to enhanced performance in organizations.

    Also the areas of Remote work & flexibility, Data Driven decision making, Advanced Employee Experience and Digital transformation can be a gamechanger in Human Resource Management.

  118. It’s the automation part as we are emerging AI now, HRM will have to update their digital skills in order to meet up with this future AI trends.

  119. I would love to see where there is a match of activities with what experience the HR personnel have and also vast training on HR technology.

  123. There are a few trends that I think will be important in the future of human resource management. One is the increased use of technology, such as AI and to streamline HR processes and improve efficiency. Another trend is the growing importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, as organizations recognize the benefits of having a workforce that is diverse and inclusive. Lastly, I think we’ll see a greater focus on employee well-being and mental health, as employers seek to create a positive work environment that supports the overall health and well-being of their employees

  124. With the vast rate of advancement in technology, I see virtual H.R.M where the workers might totally not need to come to the office, amd work remotely from there homes, amd I also see possibility of AI taking over some part of Human resource development.

  125. With the vast rate of advancement in technology, I see visual H.R.M where the workers might totally not need to come to the office, amd work remotely from there homes, amd I also see possibility of AI taking over some part of Human resource development.

  126. In the future, AI can take over the HR position in some offices, i suggest something unique should be added to make the profession look unique.

  127. In the future, AI can taking over the HR position in some offices, i suggest something unique should be added to make the profession look unique.

  128. Another future can be the ability of the HR to really integrate into the digital world as everything in the labour is evolving

  129. 1. Another future trend could be usage of robotic instead of human power as the technology is improving day by day.

    2. Lack of experience, must HR prefer young people to old, and young people start schooling now adays compare to 90’s

  130. Automation of HR AI software to create less human presence and to create work space for accurate and partial employee performance analysis

  131. I believe that one of the biggest HRM trends we’ll see in the future is the rise of automation and artificial intelligence (AI). With advances in technology, businesses will be able to automate more tasks and processes, freeing up HR professionals to focus on more strategic initiatives. AI will also play a bigger role in areas like candidate screening, recruitment, and employee engagement. I also think we’ll see more focus on employee well-being and work-life balance, as companies strive to create a more positive and productive work environment.

  132. They will be trends on automation, Data and analytics which involves having basic knowledge on computer operations, To be able to access dashboards and also understand HR technology.They will also be future trends on task and industry-specific human capital.

  133. I see a future where no single organization, no matter how little will function effectively without a solid HR manager and HHR team. I believe HR is the bedrock of any budding organization and their ticket to effective operations and general success.

  134. Remote work policies might be put in place, whereby most HRMs will be working from home. I also believe another HRM future trend will be making use of AI for recruitment.

  135. HRM will trend in the future for there will be great decision making in the human resources management.

  136. HRM’s great diversity and it’s ability to unlock unknown but important aspects of an organization thereby driving up consistent growth and then being able to fast track it will make it one of the most sought after jobs in the world.

  137. HR analytics for better decision-making, and a growing emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within organizations.

  138. HRM,will be a very great force to reckon with ,as it’s going to be one of the hottest jobs, because of its great diversity.

  139. A flexible work model accommodates the workforce’s diverse needs. AI and predictive analytics are emerging trends . Revolutionizing workforce management and simplifying data decision- making.

  140. HR future trend may include the increase in the impact of data and analytics as well as automation and digital transformation which will open room for remote work policies and AI driven recruitment.

  141. HRM future trends includes Digital transformation which entails remote work policies, emphasis on employee well-being, AI-driven recruitment

    1. Artificial intelligence and machine learning. Robotics is also another future trend that will play a pivotal role in personnel management and can also serve as a replacement to remote works.

  142. Certainly! Some emerging HRM trends include remote work policies, emphasis on employee well-being, AI-driven recruitment, and a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  143. Soon I think we will see a trend where HRM can be connected through a data system where even when you leave a company to go work for another, your background can be checked online and also we will soon see HRM bring involved in the indepth decision making in organization as they are the ones who keeps the culture of these organization.

  144. Globalization of labour market which will bring abour global workers, working remotely there by making the physical work space a thing of the past and the organisation more flexible.

  145. With the increase in the level of technology on daily basis and the advent of AI, HR will be task also with the work of a data analysis and maintenance of automated machines

  146. In the future, HRM trends may include increased focus on employee well-being, remote work policies, AI-driven recruitment, and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. Continuous learning and development programs are likely to gain prominence as well.

    Additionally, personalized employee experiences, data-driven decision-making in HR, flexible work arrangements, and enhanced use of technology for HR processes are expected to shape the future of human resource management.

  147. The use of Data Analytics will aid in selection processes. There will be inventions of more technology applied tools for Human Resource Management, and it will be flexible enough for remote jobs.

  148. People will have to compete with Artificial Intelligence in years to come, but I don not think AI can totally replace humans in HRM though. It’s all a matter of time anyways.

  149. AI will transform HRM processes, which also include recruitment, employee(s) training, overall performance evaluation, and predictive analytics for the workforce.

  150. The next generation of managers: Organizations have to find ways to effectively prepare these new generation of managers to handle he workforce. Members of Gen Y are now well into their 30’s and even 40’s and are coming into leadership positions, meanwhile many of the Gen Z’s are already managing teams especially now that they would like to give and receive feedback, especially in the context of performance reviews.

  151. Predicting future HRM trends can be speculative, but based on current developments and emerging technologies, several trends are likely to shape the future of HRM:

    Remote Work Policies: With the rise of remote work due to advancements in technology and the impact of events like the COVID-19 pandemic, HRM will continue to focus on remote work policies, including virtual team management, performance evaluation, and ensuring employee well-being in remote settings.

    AI and Automation: AI and automation will continue to transform HRM processes, including recruitment, employee training, performance evaluation, and predictive analytics for workforce planning. AI-driven tools will help HR professionals make data-driven decisions and streamline repetitive tasks.

    Employee Experience: HRM will increasingly prioritize employee experience, focusing on creating a positive work environment, fostering employee engagement, and providing opportunities for skill development and career growth.

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI): DEI initiatives will remain a central focus of HRM, with organizations striving to create inclusive workplaces that value diversity and ensure equal opportunities for all employees.

  152. Automation

    Since the Covid19 outbreak, some HR responsibilities have been taken over by the development of HR software. In years to come, more responsibilities may be taken over by automation

  153. One HRM trend I see coming in the future is the heavy inclusion of Artificial Intelligence into the HRM model. This would include in areas of employee data and analytics, delegation of tasks and positions to well suited individuals in the organization and so on.

    1. Data Driven Decision Making
    Data is transforming the way HR functions. From predicting employee turnover to analyzing engagement levels, data-driven insights enable HR professionals to make informed decisions. However, this trend also poses challenges related to data privacy and ethical considerations when utilizing personal employee data.

    2. Human Resource departments will face new compliance requirements.
    As is the case with every other aspect of life, laws and guidelines change. In response to this reality, HR departments will grapple with new compliance requirements. HR managers will be faced with the need to rewrite employee handbooks and reevaluate rules pertaining to workplace harassment measures, leave benefits, and drug testing. 
    HR departments will also have to navigate the pay transparency laws that are rapidly becoming more common across the globe

  155. HRM is tend to become a fully remote job in the nearest future. In the sense that the HR personnel might or will not have to be there physically but the home doing his or her job perfectly well.

  156. I see the future of HRM transcending from what it is today to becoming I.T. inclined and creating more avenues by making HR personnel’s have a seat on the table.

  157. With the raising event in AI and other technology, there is tendency for downsizing in some organizations. Hence, posing a challenge for HR managers on who to retain and who to lay-off

  158. With the entry of AI and its rapidly growing strength, HR workers may have to adapt and pick up AI related strategies

  159. Use of Ai for recruitment processes and the ability to work remotely but efficiently in a highly computerized environment

  160. The recent trend the I believe the HR would need in future is the ability to work hand in hand with future machines and computer programs. The need for HR professionals to have basic working ideas of computer programs and Operations will be important as people are gradually losing jobs to machines. But with an up-skill in basic computer operations and basic computer programs the work force will not be easily replaced. The Human brain is unique. We program the machines to what we want them to do or how we want them to work. It shouldn’t be limited to those who are into programming or operations. HR should train work force in basic knowledge so as to have understanding of how things work in the modern technology driven world. The need to have unlimited knowledge to HR software computer programs is important as data knowledge the bedrock of all Human Resource Management

  161. The Future of HR include the following:
    – Setting the Hybrid work model for collaboration
    – Generative AI to Enhance HR process
    – DEI in the spotlight: DEI means Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
    – People Analytics
    – Predictive Analysis for HR
    – Change Management

  162. A primary HR trend will involve a focus on learning. Organizations will allocate resources to offer employees opportunities for acquiring new skills, fostering development, and enhancing their prospects for career advancement. Ensuring continuous learning involves making it accessible at all times.

  163. I see the emergence of task and industry-specific human capitalcoming up in the future as companies are keyed to seeing growth and rapid development as they are not really creating the space of based trained on the job because of the close competitive market in various industries and the changing economy of the world at large.

  164. one future HRM trend i can think of right now would be the use of AI in HRM, AI automated recruitment, and selection process.

  165. Adoption ofAI tools for HR to help make work faster and easier than it use to be before. And daily observant of employees to achieve better results for the organization.

  166. As the HR landscape evolves, companies must remain agile and responsive. Strategies for the future include engaging employees efficiently and regularly checking employee mental health.

  167. HR trend in current picture is basically
    Wellness and providing resources to support health , work place ambiance, support and provision of adequate work tools for employee of the organizations.
    HRM being involved in strategic planning and thinking along with the administrative part of an organization. It would help HRM have a knowledge in aspect of embracing new technologies that will promote the organization growth

  168. HRM trends that are expected to shape the future
    1. Talent scarcity and skills gap: Competition for skilled workers will intensify, making employee development and upskilling crucial
    2. Employees well being and mental health: Prioritizing employee wellness and providing resources to support mental health and resilience
    3. Integration of AI and automation: Leveraging technology to enhance HR processes, improve employee’s experience and augment human capabilities

  169. HR is now so important, even the smallest scales industry or manufacturer rely on them to execute the job.
    Through information and recommendation from HR work is made easy through the channels of workforce in an organization

  170. -Building diversity and inclusion
    -Promoting wellbeing in the workplace
    -Balancing work arrangements in a way that’s not rigid and will allow flexibility among individuals

  171. The increase in the impact of data and analytics. HR professionals are now required to build skills they traditionally weren’t very good at. Not many HR professionals needed to access dashboards or have a deep understanding of HR technology a few years ago.

  172. One trend is the increased use of artificial intelligence and automation in HR processes, like candidate screening and employee training. Another trend is the focus on employee well-being and work-life balance, with companies offering more flexible work arrangements and wellness programs. And let’s not forget about the growing importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

  173. Virtual onboarding processes, online team-building activities, and remote mentorship programs are emerging trends to ensure new hires feel connected and engaged from day one.

  174. * Employee experience
    * People Analytics (like mental health check)
    * AI and automation
    * Data analysis and reports..e.t.c

  175. A few more trends that may likely spring up on the future, in my own opinion are;
    – In the area of data & analytics, advanced softwares would be introduced to help HR professionals in data collection.
    – HRM would transcend from human management, to AI management, as AI would be adopted in carrying out professional tasks, thereby enhancing efficiency. This will have HRM becoming more immersed in technology.

  176. I see a HRM trends of AI -Artificial Intelligence Program been use to enable the work of HRM to be more efficient.

  177. The future of AI playing a major role in how HRM is being done, more analytical insights will be done to check and balance the trends this would also boost the surge of HR analytics

  178. The future trend I see coming in the future is in the aspect of technology like AI evolution which will play a significant role in helping to achieve business goals.

  179. The emergence of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning
    Flexible work arrangement, this includes remote jobs.
    The impact of Data and analytics
    Digital transformation Threatening to partially automate many of the administrative HR jobs
    Continuous learning to have an agile and competitive workforce
    how to ensure employees remain engaged while working as hybrid staff

  180. Some emerging HRM trends include increased focus on employee well-being, remote work policies, adoption of AI for HR tasks, emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the use of data analytics for talent management.

  181. This was a very insightful lecture. The trend I see coming in the future is the merging of human resource management and AI in the ever-changing work environment. AI’s incorporation has the potential to boost efficiency, especially in aspects like talent acquisition and data-driven decision-making, revolutionizing conventional HR approaches and shaping the future of workforce management.

  182. HRM professionals will need to up their skill in technology as physical workspace is gradually fading and giving way for advanced technology such as Ai and the likes

  183. This was a very detailed teaching.

    One future trend in HRM would be being involved in strategic planning and thinking along with the administrative part of an organization. It would help HRM have a knowledge of that aspect.
    HRM aren’t getting enough credit for their job but in the future, it would pay off when they are involved in the organization’s strategic planning.

  184. Tapping into the current technology such as AI. Upgrading on all angles also allowing the young ones to take part in organising building skills since young ones have invaded the space in such a short period of time.

  185. Policy development is going to be a thing because lots of trends are coming up, and there has to be flexible policies that help organizations acclimatize, and still reach their goals, with improved bottom line..

  186. I totally agree with the thoughts provided in the video on the future of HR. Policy development is going to be a thing because lots of trends are coming up, and there has to be flexible policies that help organizations acclimatize, and still reach their goals, with improved bottom line..

  187. With the gradual takeover of the workplace by AI and machines, I believe HRM should upskill and embrace the emergence technology, so as not to be left behind or replaced by AI and machines.

  188. Change management is a key trend that will emerge in field of Human Resources. In life the only thing constant is change. The HR sector must be prepared for the unexpected. We must be ready to adapt to shifts in goal, processes and technologies.

  189. Predicting future trends can be speculative, but some HRM trends on the horizon include increased focus on employee well-being, remote work policies, diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

  190. Given the importance on AI and robotics in the nearest future, an increased impact on data and analytics is paramount with a good strategic planning giving room to a very highly competitive market due to the advancement of the Human Resource Management.,

  191. For me basically, I see more organizations adapting diversity, equity and inclusion into their system.
    The Integration of AI in the HR processes for data analytics etc.

  192. HRM proffesionals will need to keep up on learning new skills and new learnings to enable strategic involvement in organizational growth success.

  193. In the nearest future I see HR experiencing predictive analysis as Artificial Intelligence is taking over the world

  194. I am enjoying this module one topic, with what I have read so far, HRM is evolving and more interesting trends will be introduced especially AI doing some HR activities like scanning the human brain and get some recruitment done by their IQ level.
    No interview, no work test,etc..
    Thank you DEXA for this new level

  195. Due to globalization and the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, HRM scope has become more complex and ambiguous, HR mangers need to dive more into acquring tech skills and constantly upskilling there knowledge in other to stay relevant, in this light, i forsee the business world becoming more automated, giving room for machines to take over the HRM task resulting to decrease in HUMAN CAPITAL. The challenge here is that skilled HR personnel will compete with machines for the position, having at the back of our minds that machines deliver faster and can combine the work of 2-5 people at the same time. Employers will definately go for a more efficient option which will inturn lead to more displacement of jobs. Also technology has giving rise to Agile and Scrum mastery, i forsee it taken over HRM role in future. HR personel should always upskill and re-learn to be relevant in there field.

  196. Another major future trend is due to the increase in the impact of data and analytics. HR professionals are now required to build skills they traditionally weren’t very good at.

  197. The next trend of HRM coming will focus on HR Data and Analytics, this is because of the rapid growth of tech today but at the same time still focus on performance management, learning and development.

  198. More globalization, talents and skills to companies and organizations will be more accessible and seamless to connect

  199. One future trend that I think will be more receptive and should be implemented as a policy are Equality,inclusion and diversity.This is a pressing issue in growing organisations nd it is an important aspect of development for any successful business or enterprise and therefore should be prioritised greatly,cultivated as a consistent practice to be embraced for the benefit of both employers and employees.

  200. A significant trend will be companies believing and investing more in remote option. Also setting up a data or a method to ensure productivity is on point.

  201. Given the current growth rate of AI, the HR Management profession is facing a significant challenge in accommodating the hybrid and flexible workforces. With the increasing adoption of AI, companies are shifting towards more flexible and remote working arrangements, which can lead to several HR-related issues. These include managing remote workers, ensuring effective communication, maintaining employee engagement and motivation, and monitoring productivity. The HR Management profession needs to adapt to these changing conditions and develop new strategies and tools to navigate this new landscape effectively.

  202. AI is also a digital trend that might prevent a Human resources professional from ascertaining the originality of some things.for example using AI to generate a resume which makes it lack originality

  203. Navigating the complexities of remote and hybrid work environments has become a pressing challenge. How do you ensure that employees remain engaged, productive, and connected?

  204. Another significant trends coming up in the HRM world is the adaptation of new technology like AI in evaluating performance of employee services in an organization. The new technology which will be faster and reliable will give real appraisal of the employee and recommend where necessary for training and talent complement.

    1. HR will be the most practice skills few years from now because you will have to know how to manage people for any company to move forward.

  205. Virtual onboarding processes, online team-building activities, and remote mentorship programs are the future trends of HRM

  206. If the HR are the set of people who make up the work place an organization.
    Then the future trend would be investing more In the HUMAN CAPITAL.
    While the strategic HR department should focus on creating more numbers of strategic differentiators.
    This is another way the HRM can help their organization to be more successful.

  207. Human Resource is a growing but potentially proven sector in Nigeria with just a few start-ups in it.
    I believe in the next few decades major and minor companies will begin to rely heavily on their services.

  208. The recent outbreaks of pandemic which automatically less the remote jobs is gradually changing the narrative from the traditional ways of doing job , in addition to relevant skills will be needed to enable HR manager drive the work place

  209. I think HR will be the most practice skills few years from now because you will have to know how to manage people for any company to move forward.

  210. The future HR trend I forsee is Technical skill upgrade which will give one a competitive edge over others..try to acquire a strong relevant knowledge,personal development and the required values needed so as to join the moving trend.

  211. The impact of globalization on labor markets, allowing companies to tap into a global talent pool will impact the HR role. The shift to remote work, accelerated by the pandemic, is changing the traditional concept of physical workspaces which means HR will have to use other remote / virtual ways to manage organizations and work force.
    Also AI would probably start doing most of the recruitment processes and performance management based on set indicators.

  212. I also see Artificial Intelligence taking the space in HR. This will help to breakdown more complex tasks and bring about am almost perfect and precise results.

  213. As the HR landscape evolves, companies must remain agile and responsive. Strategies for the future include engaging employees efficiently, fostering daily virtual interactions for remote employees, providing training and career development opportunities and regularly checking employee mental health

  214. Hi Dexa thank you for the opportunity of this course. I just hope Al will not replace HR in the nearest future as the world keeps advancing everyday.

  215. As HR is the Bedrock of any organisation, now we dive into a contemporary word of digital skills where AI is taking the high percentage of workforce in many organisation. So, I think the Human intelligence and skills must be upgraded and measured in order to compete with the new digital and AI trends.

    Thank you and best regards.

  216. One of the most trends I see coming up in the future and will likely takeover the place of the HR position is AI. This might eventually drive the efficiency of humans in various organisations into extinction.

  217. Looking at the future of HRM we could be having a replacement of employees with robot . It’s quite disturbing because it will render alot of human jobless.

  218. Future HRM I see coming in the future and am afraid of is the replacement of employees with robot which seems to have been taken place in some part of the world. It’s quite disturbing because it will render alot of human jobless.

  219. To increase the emergence of HR working remotely especially here in Nigeria that cost of transportation is very high. However, HR will able to develop strategic modems for boosting organization performance.

  220. Future HRM trend I see coming is HR managers becoming a core factor able to determine workers employment and enforce technology training for employees

  221. Some emerging HRM trends include increased focus on employee well-being, remote work strategies, AI-driven HR tech for better decision-making, and continued emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives

  222. Certainly! In addition to the mentioned trends, future HRM is likely to see increased emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, as organizations recognize the importance of a diverse workforce. Employee well-being, mental health support, and a focus on work-life balance will also become more integral. Additionally, continuous learning and development programs will be crucial to keep pace with rapidly evolving skills requirements in the job market. These trends reflect a broader shift towards a more holistic and people-centric approach in HRM.

  223. Future trends of HR would also include employees working remotely through the strategic differentiators which includes information and Analytics HRM activities.

  224. One of the trends I have seen is the reduced usage of Talent Acquisition Specialists, whereby Talents or Candidates can be gotten to fill certain roles by recommendations. A website that I came across that does this is called Bounty Hunters World.

    I also see A.I trending in the recruitment and selection activity.

  225. One of the teens that’s I think would come up is the need for HR Professionals to be able to analyze large amount of data using data tools like python or power Bi. More to say combining data analysts and HRM.

  226. HR will be totally digital, meaning the recruitment,performance,learning down to compensation will all be learned online through the companies website that will be only accessible to those who reach the criteria. since the world in moving globally now . most HR jobs will be remote .

  227. I see total up scaling in all the HR process. This means the full use of technology to drive all HR process from recruiting to onboarding and down to exit process.

  228. Remote work optimization, also the rise of AI in recruitment processes, personalized learning and enhanced use of data analytics for HR decision-making.

  229. It’s a great privilege to encounter this excellent course.

    Another trend I could see for HR is the building of human capacity beyond the skills that they had initially, HR will build a world where humans will have the innate ability to bring in creative ideas and thoughts towards the development of every organization and to the achievement of the organization goals.

  230. I see basic IT skills being a prerequisite for employment irrespective of the role in the near future.

    AI is already a big part of the employee selection process but I see AI being used in more of the recruitment stages like assessment, test of spoken language etc.

    I also see companies engaged in BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) springing up in Nigeria and other West African countries especially, due to the cheap labour. Remote, hybrid work will become the preferred choice.

  231. One HRM trend I see coming up in the future is more of Equity as against Equality, it will be more diversified catering to individual needs and more human focused as well as all round Inclusion.
    It will create a more inclusive environment in the workforce.

  232. The trend of remote work and flexible schedules is expected to continue with companies adopting hybrid work models that combine remote and in-office work.

  233. Future trends of human resource management such as remote Work Policies of the organisation, employee Well-being; an increased focus on holistic well-being programs to support physical, mental, and emotional health of workers in HR department is important, data-Driven Decision-Making; HR departments leveraging data analytics for informed talent management decisions. This trends will boost the growth of the HRM in the near future.

  234. A future trend… I strongly believe that the Hierarchy or positions of staffs, workers( Including Casuals in some organisations) or such in every organisation should be processed and handled by the HRM.

  235. International Hybrid working.

    Due to the slow adoption of working from home, HR will also be moved to employ people from different part of a country to hone their needed skills to fill in for a particular job role regardless of the employee’s nationality. An employee from another country that is competent and has the required skill to work in a vacant position can apply for the job even if it is located in a totally different country. All that is required is the necessary tools, equipment and approved access to work efficiently.

  236. Based on the vast pool of prospective employees from the global market, HRs will be required to be multilingual in order to be able to effectively communicate and coordinate the various strata of individuals that would make up the work force. Also computer based tests will also need to be introduced in place of one on one interviews of prospective employees since the organization will be spreading her tentacles beyond her geographic location.

  237. Outsourcing. This will become a future trend so they can divert some of the responsibility to the outsourcing company. They don’t have to deal with the monitoring of such staff

  238. Thank you for the lessons.
    Future trends will also include giving full attention to soft skills and promoting employees value proposition so as to attract the best talents.

  239. As the work environment is now. Organisations are after skilled labour rather than certificate, HR should add more skills to certification so as to be relevant in the organisation. The case of HR not being regarded when important meeting are holding in the organisation is a typical example. HR should add strategies to the field so as to be relevant in every angle of the organisation. We shouldn’t base our doings only on recruitment and selection, talent hunting and more.

  240. The HRM trends I see coming up in the future is the use of the artificial intelligence in recruiting employees and making HRM more of a remote job.

  241. Thank you for the well detailed explanations for each sub-topic. I see AI being adopted to get jobs done faster, especially in the selection process.

  245. Some HRM trends in the future will include remote work practices and the adoption of AI This could help make work run smoothly and effectively.

  246. Hybrid work models will increase with a mix of remote and in-office work,
    Increase Focus on soft skills: As AI takes over routine tasks, soft skills like critical thinking, creativity, and emotional intelligence will become increasingly valuable

  247. I see rapid increase in versatile knowledge and crafty skills within the HR. This is due to the ongoing dynamics in the society and upskills, this will be an added advantage and a push up factor for firm decision making.

  248. One HRM trend I foresee is HRs actually considering the employees as opposed to the current trend of being the company’s bulldogs against employees.

  249. Increased level of diversity and inclusion within the HR because our societal changes
    Up-skilling due to the constant advancements and changes with job requirements
    Pro-active approach to maintaining well-being and good mental health especially after the pandemic

  250. I believe world leaders will be seek to cut spending to keep afloat due to increasing world economic tension. However, topics like equity, diversity and inclusion will grow even stronger.

  251. Some potential HRM trends for the future will include increase in remote work practices to ease productivity and employee effectiveness.
    Adoption of Artificial Intelligence AI in carrying out tasks faster and more efficient especially for information dissemination, recruitment, learning and development processes.

  252. The trend in Learning and Development is also another area. There is now a shift from attending physical workshops and seminars to online learning and skill development. Human resources might have to partner with such institutions in order to keep their employees updated.

  253. It should be designing new career path that would cater for the emerging needs in Organizations and also providing the right pay and financial/ professional benefits to facilitate employees retention.

  254. Reskilling and Upskilling for a Future Ready Workforce:
    For any business to succeed, it’s important to focus on continuous learning and development of employees.
    Planning to invest in employee training, mentorship programs, and opportunities for upskilling and reskilling the workforce could be a best bet for businesses.

  255. Well, Artificial Intelligence in recruitment, upskill, Diversity, Work flexibility and Hybrid work model and Automations in recruitments

  256. One of the HRM trend I see coming up is the recruitment of talents online. (without having to meet such talents physically).

  257. AI and Automation in HR: AI and automation in HR represent a paradigm shift in how human resource functions are carried out

  258. AI would be a major part of the recruitment automation in the HR and the fact that there would be systems that would track employees avatar.

  259. HRM will tend to work remotely in the near future with the emergence of new technologies and it will also become more involve in strategic decision making than daily activities like line managers functions 👍

  260. An advanced digitalized method of executing HRM activities might be working remotely with AI
    Advance technology to increase efficiency well technically AI.

  261. How HR will have to track effectively employee who work remotely, technically to ensure the organisation goals are reached.

  262. Aside working remotely and being able to work for any organization in any country regardless of where you are, the introduction is of AI would make it more efficient in the future.

  263. There are several human resources management trends that are likely to emerge in the future. Like Automation and AI in HR Processes,Flexible Work Arrangements, Data-Driven HR and lots more

    1. but do you think working remotely will be a better idea for human resources management, but talking Ai i can still say yes

  264. With the introduction of A1, HR managers will need to learn how to add this new tools to make their work faster and more efficient towards achieving a set objectives

    1. well talking about ‘integration of Artificial Intelligence’ I think you are right but how about management?.

  265. Highly computerized work environments, and increase in remote work policies are the trends I see coming up in the future.

    1. The HR trends I see is that HR should be familiar with AI and also becoming more strategic and being able to solve major problems in the Organization.

  266. Although some potential HR trends might include increased focus on remote work policies and emphasis on employee well-being, continued integration of technology for HR processes.

  267. Although artificial intelligence is taking over the workspace as of late, it may not efficiently manage Human Resources, as there would be need for specifications in expertise, requiring physical scrutinization by human managers. Hence,the future trend I see is Inclusivity of AI in HRM for efficient management of all required skill set.

  268. There will be a flexible working environment where Artificial intelligence would have to carryout most of the works done by human resource professionals

  269. From my point of view, there may be a more flexible working environment than it is now and the use of digital tools will be highly sort for.

  270. In the technology aspect through the aspect of AI production HRM will be needed in administrating their level of activeness and concentrate on what problems they could solve.

  271. Artificial Intelligence, Predictive Analytics and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). These are the future trending of HRM because they’re gaining momentum very fast than any others.

  272. One of the major future trends I see coming is ENHANCED TECHNOLOGY.
    this is making/will make a great impact in organisation………..in relation to HRM.

  273. In the future to come, I see HRM going into competition with AI and other auto-pilot machines. Aim of any company or business is to make profit and maximize cost and due to this majority will definitely go for the service of Auto-pilot machines instead of depending on human capacity to get the work done at costly price and time consuming too, but still HRM function can’t be completely substitute for AI because An HRM with update skill will definitely be needed for the machines to perform too, also it’s the duty of the HR to select the best of the best to operate those machines and it Maintenace.

  274. The use of data analytics and AI in HRM decision-making, such as predictive analytics for talent management, personalized learning, and performance evaluation, is likely to continue expanding as technology advances.

    Also, the growing importance of employee well-being programs that encompass mental health support, stress management initiatives, and work-life balance strategies. Organizations are recognizing the impact of holistic well-being on employee performance, retention, and overall company culture.

  275. The future trends I see coming in HRM is the use of Artificial intelligence in creating a more engaging and customized experience for every employee, leading to increased retention.

  276. DIVERSITY: The future demands that organisations not only embrace diversity but also cultivate an inclusive and equitable workplace.
    Digital HR: This will require HR managers to embrace a digital -first,location-independent mindset in their recruitment strategy and employee development plans.

  277. I see a continual focus on the employee wellbeing which HR takes important now since the post pandemic period. And also the use of modern technology to streamline HR processes.

  278. Remote Work Policies: With the rise of remote work, HR is likely to focus on creating and optimizing policies that support a flexible work environment.

    Technology Integration: Increased use of AI and technology in HR processes, such as recruitment automation, employee analytics, and virtual onboarding.

  279. No doubt, the future of HR is going to be Human competition against auto-pilot machines. You can trust organizations to vote more for AI to reduce cost but to hire techies more.

  280. I believe the future is here. Technology has been a driving force behind the changes in HRM and I see virtual onboarding processes and full use of AI to streamline recruitment processes loading in the HRM space.

  281. Future HR trends:
    1. AI integration for diversified work force
    2. Large and popular online workforce via remotely or office set up

  283. Possible future trends in HR include increased focus on remote work policies, enhanced use of technology for talent acquisition and management, emphasis on employee well-being and mental health support, and a continued shift toward data-driven decision-making in HR processes. Additionally, diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives are likely to play a crucial role in shaping HR practices in the future.

  284. AI and predictive analytics are emerging trends in HR, revolutionizing workforce management and simplifying data decision-making. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives are gaining momentum, with the global DEI market expected to reach $15.4 billion by 2026.

  285. Thanks for the wonderful and well explained lesson. One of the future trend I thought of is the advent of Artificial Intelligence where machines undertake some of the HRM activities right from recruitment and selection process.

  286. Due to Globalization, I see HRM taking working remotely than working physically, because the rate at which technology is advancing will make it possible.

    Kudos to the tutor for the simple and easy explanation so far.

  287. People Gaining expertise in a particular niche and working accordingly and fully remote therein. Also, HRM being more of a data driven work to get results
