The year is 2025. Do you know who is in your HR department? To find out, take a look at these five far-out job descriptions recently developed by a group of top CHROs and thought leaders as part of Project CHREATE (The Global Consortium to Reimagine HR, Employment Alternatives, Talent, and the Enterprise). The initiative—whose goal is to map the future of the profession—is supported by the Society for Human Resource Management, the National Academy of Human Resources, PricewaterhouseCoopers and HR People + Strategy.
One thing is clear: As the work world evolves to become more complex and global, HR will not be about just HR anymore. The next generation of leaders will need skills in marketing and brand management, information technology, finance, corporate relations and even community activism.
The following individuals led the team that developed the job descriptions in this article: John Boudreau, Debra Engel, Scott Pitasky, Jeff Pon and Ian Ziskin.
