Hello,

Interesting topic! Let's take a closer look at some of the HR management trends and challenges in the business literature to get you started on this paper. I also attached three supporting articles referred to in this response. One approach to help with this type of assignment is to provide a tentative outline and then look at information from various sources for each section. This is the approach this response takes. It should be fairly easy to take it to the next step of writing the paper.

RESPONSE:

Your tentative outline might look something to the effect...

I. Introduction

II. Future Trends and Challenges
a. Workplace Diversity and challenges
b. Global Trends e.g. the transformation brought about by the forces of globalization, global mindset, leadership skills in demand, etc.
c. Technological Trends e.g. the impact of information and communication technologies and
d. The emergence of knowledge-based economies and societies - 'Knowledge workers' in 'Learning environment'

III. Conclusion (restate purpose; sum up main points).

Now let's look at some information from various sources to consider for each section, including the references and links for further research.

The major purpose of HRM is to increase and improve the productive contribution of personnel to the organization in more ethical, social, and administratively responsible way. HRM is not just another personnel management fad. Research shows that its aim is to create a whole organizational culture that binds workers to the company's objectives with full professional commitment, integration, and quality work. The role of the Human Resource Manager is indeed evolving with the change in competitive market environment and the realization that Human Resource Management must play a more strategic role in the success of an organization. Organizations that do not put their emphasis on attracting and retaining talents may find themselves in dire consequences, as their competitors may be outplaying them in the strategic employment of their human resources. At a practical level, we must anticipate and prepare for the likely HR challenges in general that exists, or may be expected in the coming future (http://www.dawn.com/2003/08/11/ebr16.htm).

1. Workplace diversity and managing challenges

See the attached paper highlights is on how a HR manager can meet the challenges of workplace diversity, how to motivate employees through gain-sharing and executive information system through proper planning, organizing, leading and controlling their human resources.
