    Topic: THE FUTURE OF HR:  WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE PROFESSION? For most organizations today, the business focus has shifted from short-term survival to long-term sustainability as the U.S. and global economy continue to recover slowly from the 2008-2009 recession.  Achieving sustainability will be a true test of HR leadership in the uncertain economy ahead.   In this presentation, you will explore four major challenges HR professionals are facing today and a two-part strategy for turning the challenges into opportunities for your organization.  In addition, you will look at a case study of Deloitte LLP, where the strategies have brought impressive bottom-line results, as well as employee retention, engagement, and productivity.
