Have you ever wondered what successful HR looks like in the future? Do you find yourself pondering the best ways to develop?  Dealing with macrotrends like the GIG economy, shifting labor forces, and the reintroduction of aging workers call for a nimble and agile form of HR.  During this session, Dr. Alexander Alonso, SHRM’s Senior Vice President for Knowledge Development & Certification, will describe ways in which the HR profession can focus development to address these trends and develop like other leaders.

Learning objectives: 

  • Define the key areas where development for HR leaders differs from development of other leaders.
  • Describe the key approaches to professional development that will close the gap.
  • Build a competency-based development plan geared toward global macro-economic trends in the future
