Yeoh Sai Yew, head, people department, AirAsiaX foresees an increase in the focus on company culture and HR analytics by 2026.
My prediction on the future of HR will be more focus on culture, as it’s the only thing that cannot be easily copied.
Even though a company might not be able to attract the “best” talent with its culture, it will be able to attract the “right” talent.
HR analytics will also get more important in the future. It will no longer involve the churning of routine reports such as payroll costs, but focus more on how to integrate all these together.
As such, more sophisticated software will enable all data from HR, finance, sales, etc, to link up easily.
