HRM 660 Ashford University Women Working in The Workforce Article Discussion.
Respond to this discussion
The article that I have found focuses on what the workforce will look like in a decade based on more women working in the workforce and the amount of people that have educational level and who will be in the workforce. It stated in the article that “growth of the economy and productivity, but also about family formation, fertility, education, the course of labor-management relations, and many other trends” (Levitan, S.A., 1998, Pg. 278) the economy and family foundation is going to be a huge impact on future trends in hiring and training in HR. The article also focus on the economy growth as a whole because without the economy doing good then the trends in hiring and training in HR will not be available because there will be no jobs to offer if the economy is bad in the future.
Analyze the changes that would need to be made in HR as it is practiced today to meet these future trends.
To make that the economy stays steady enough to provide jobs in the future for both employees and HR’s the companies need to watch how the economy is doing as a whole. If the economy is doing well then there is more room to hire in new employees and HR. If the economy is doing bad then the company will have to cut positions but will still need to keep HR as they are the ones that run the company. It stated in the article that “The workplace has been changing at an accelerated pace, and there is every indication that this transformation will continue” (Levitan, S.A., 1998, Pg. 280) the workplace is going to keep changing now and in the future and for these companies to keep up they need to make sure that they are educating themselves on what is happening in the workplace now and help them for the future.
What additional implications might occur because of the new trend?
The new additional implications that might occur because of the new trend are that these companies need to make sure that they keep record of what is happening now so that they know how to handle it in the future. This can be if the economy goes down that they know how to boost their company back up when this happens.
