Steve Pruneau, CEO of Free Agent Source, will give a presentation on The Powerful New Role of HR at the NCHRA Conference in San Francisco on June 7. The Northern California Human Resources Association serves a constituency of 20,000.
The presentation promises to be of explosive interest to companies looking to compete more effectively during rapid economic change. Pruneau will identify where HR needs to evolve, because the workforce that companies have now isn’t the workforce they will need next year.
“HR is losing relevance,” says Pruneau, “right along with permanent employment. The emphasis on permanent employment from the 1950s can’t change the new economic reality. The last 50 years has seen a shift in the nature of work, from stable customer requirements and slowly changing technology to a project based economy and an increase in variable demand. HR Heroes will not only save HR, but revitalize it.”
The powerful new role of HR is about HR professionals making their companies thrive as economic cycles change more swiftly and company leaders face increased economic uncertainty. HR professionals will regain their essential role not in spite of, but because of, the rise of the contingent work force and the project based economy.
Says Pruneau, “We call HR Professionals heroes when they step rightly into the pivotal role they must play in the new organizational infrastructure. There, they bolster the new economy, and that’s exciting and powerful.”
