current trends

Effective managers stay abreast of current HR topics.

Some relevant issues facing today’s managers include: global HRM, labor relations, social media, whistleblower rules, e-HRM/self-service, moving from transactional to strategic HRM, the knowledge economy, outsourcing pros and cons, managing four different generations in the workforce, increasing age of the workforce, the glass ceiling, implications of baby boomer retirements, immigration, social responsibility, elder care, executive pay, and alternative work arrangements.

Select three topics from the list above (other than the topics you researched in Module 8 DQ 1). Research each topic. For each of your three chosen topics, provide a bulleted list of five or six relevant facts that you believe have significance for line managers.
