HR in 2030: What does the future of HR hold?

New research from Sage reveals the five emerging HR trends progressive People leaders need to know to get ahead. 

The HR trends to expect in 2030

17 HR and People experts reveal the five biggest HR trends and insights that HR leaders need to know today to get ahead in 2030. 

1. Flexible working: Revolutionised employee experiences that truly make work, work

Rising employee expectations will challenge HR like never before to provide authentic, tailored workforce experiences that empower people to do their best work.

2. Organisational flexibility, fluidity and agility led by HR

HR will prepare and lead organisations through whatever crisis hits with agility and confidence - no matter how unexpected.

3. People analytics-based insights that drive business impact

People analytics in HR teams will have fully-evolved beyond just data reporting and collection - and be intrinsic to driving business impact across all organisations.

4. HR automation trends will elevate the role of HR

Automation will free up HR leaders' time to focus on the things that really matter - and take more of a leadership role across organisations.

5. DEI will encompass so much more

Companies still have a long way to go when it comes to DEI - and employees already expect and deserve more than just hollow words.
