In Trends in HR the HR Trend Institute publishes articles about trends in HR (Human Resources Management). Annual highlight is an article with the most prominent trends that are expected in the next year (Like: “10 HR trends for 2017”). The HR Trend Institute detects, follows and encourages trends in the domain of people and organisations and in related areas. The articles about HR Trends can be broad, covering trends in a specific area like HR Operations, or highlight a neat innovative example in an HR practice. The HR Trend Institute wants to inspire the readers with examples they can use to improve the impact of HR in their organisations.
