Challenges You Face

We’ve tried to envision the field of the future based on present trends and research. Throughout this book, we’ve shown how the field is growing rapidly and expanding its borders. This reshaping and reforming will continue. The career model we’ve presented may need future revisions because of the continuing effects of workplace trends and issues and the thinking of people in the field. Ongoing mergers, reorganizations, and new start-up companies will keep affecting HRD departments and the way they conduct business.

I believe the greatest challenges we face rest on how each organization and its leaders will be able to create a workplace culture that will attract, reward, and retain skilled workers. Increasingly, “wellness” issues will need to be examined more closely as workers have more demanding working and family lives. . . . I also believe the aging workforce and its challenges will need closer examination in the future.

—Julie Crews, senior policy officer, Department of Productivity and Labour Relations, Government of Western Australia
