Navigate to the discussion thread below and respond to the following:
Challenges Facing HR: Select one of four broad categories (i.e., demographics and society, economics and employment, public policy and law, and science and technology). Predict what challenges HR in your organization (or in an organization with which you are familiar) will face over the next 10 years.
Most Effective Tactics:
In the “SHRM Workplace Forecast” report, review the reading material for the broad category that you selected in Step 2.a.
In your initial post, compare and contrast the ways that HR professionals are responding to the changes occurring within the selected broad category, as found in your reading in the SHRM article.
Also in your initial post, purposefully select key ideas for addressing the specific challenges HR currently faces (those challenges you detailed in your response in Step 2.a.) using your own ideas and first-rate “other ideas” included in the SHRM article at the end of the section reading for each of the four broad categories. Support your selections.
Provide a detailed post that demonstrates clear, insightful critical thinking. Your initial response posting on each of the topics should be 200-300 words in length and include two academic resources that are properly cited.
