Recent legislation changes in employment law – age discrimination, working time directive, holiday entitlements etc are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of changes happening within the Human Resources Management function. HR transformation and revitalisation, change management, alignment of HRM and the strategic objectives of the organisation are all current hot topics in many organisations both public and commercial.

Making big changes happen – HR Shared Services, HR Business Process Outsourcing, strategic reviews and redesign alongside the provision of the main staples of the HRM function means HR functions continue to be tested on the value and contribution they make. There is a case that all HR Services maybe outsourced, HRM are under constant pressure to ensure they are adding value to the objectives of the business.
