As a profession, HR has changed quite a lot and seen its fair share of trends, some of which have aged better than others (I’m looking at you, open-plan offices). Nonetheless, there is an element of continuity within some of the core concepts that underpin the day-to-day work of HR; including its strategic roles in organizational development, human relations, talent, and workforce planning.
In this podcast, Dr. Charles-Henri Besseyre des Horts explains more about how the HR profession has evolved, and gives insights into how the path of HR continues to inform its present. He contends that HR today is at a critical juncture, where the existence of established long term trends, and the rise of new powerful trends (AI, digital, social pressures) – now places an enormous emphasis on HR to constantly re-invent itself.
Charles-Henri has over thirty years of experience within the world of HR, organizational management, strategic planning, business development, and change. He is an Emeritus Professor at HEC Business School in Paris, an established author, consultant, speaker, researcher, and teacher. He has published many books and articles across both academic and professional journals. Charles-Henri is also the President of the Francophone Association of HR Academics.
