In Trends in HR the HR Trend Institute publishes articles about trends in HR (Human Resources Management).

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.
