Outsourcing and the use of HR technology is set to increase dramatically
over the next 10 years, according to a survey called Predicting the workplace
The research, by HR consultancy Cubiks, shows that HR will become
increasingly involved in business strategy and will rely heavily on niche
providers of recruitment, assessment, training and reward management services.
In the future, the responsibility for personal development will shift from
the employer to the employee, claims the report.
Barry Spence, chief executive of Cubiks, said, "If HR professionals can
make software and the Internet work for them, they will see valuable time
released for channelling into more strategic activities."
The survey is based on 100 responses.
