Employer branding & reputation
Given the new world of social transparency, organizations can no longer afford to rely only on recruitment advertising to build a positive employer brand image. With employee advocacy growing ever more important, consistent values and vitality of organizational cultures will be a must for employers reputation among new generation and strategic talent.
Toward a more strategic HR function
HR is about people, which is the core of an organization and its strategic plan. Social technology enables organizations to draw up new team structures and ways of working. Strategic HR means, forward thinking design and implementation of consistant internal practices to ensure that human capital contributes to the achievement of its business objectives.

Mobile recruitment
The mobile explosion changed the recruiting game. In 2010, only 10 % of job seekers used their mobile phone to search and apply for jobs. Today, that figure had risen to 75%. With the seismic shift towards mobile-savvy job-seekers, recruiters face a blunt choice. They must either strategize for radical change or compromise their ability to compete for talent.
New leadership style
The complexity of globalization and technology are putting demands on leadership models. Leaders today must be highly flexible, comfortable with fast-changing environments and capable of utilizing multiple leadership styles. Honesty, transparency, flexibility, real time feedback are new terms on the field.

Human capital equal to company´s value
Human capital viewed as an asset on the balance sheet rather than a liability. Companies that will invest in their employees to create positive environments in which they can work, will out-perform financially their competitors.
Technology and HR platforms
Businesses are reaching out to cloud-computing & big data analysis to predict more accurately employment and talent trends as input to HR planning and management. Business intelligence, Open Knowledge, LMS Tranning Platforms are here to stay.
