ORLANDO, Fla. — What will the world of work look like years from now?
New research sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Foundation and written by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) identifies key findings on the changing nature of work and resulting implications for human resource professionals.
PRESS BRIEFING: Mark Schmit, executive director of the SHRM Foundation, will be available for questions about the research via conference call at 3:45 p.m. EST today (Monday, June 23). For dial-in directions, contact SHRM Media Relations. Released today at the SHRM Annual Conference in Orlando, the
Evolution of Work and the Worker report predicts:
“It is clear from this forward-looking research that the future holds many talent management changes and challenges that business leaders and their HR partners will need to overcome,” said Mark Schmit, SHRM Foundation executive director. “The SHRM Foundation will be funding research to make sure that there are effective practices for dealing with these future issues.”
The report is the first in a series of three research reports in the SHRM Foundation’s new Thought Leadership Initiative, which will include validation reports, articles, videos and infographics to identify emerging trends on workforce issues for progressive organizational leaders.
Said David Humphreys, custom research director, Americas, at The Economist Intelligence Unit: “The evidence validates a simple but powerful mega-trend: the nature of work and the worker has and will continue to evolve. Thus staying ahead of the curve through timely, informed decisions will be critical if we are to find effective and innovative solutions.”
The research report, videos and infographics from the Evolution of Work and the Worker report are available free of charge at
