Come 2026, it is going to be more apparent to the business how HR delivers real value within the organisation, justifies Corinna Cheang, head - people, Jetstar Asia.

The changing business landscape, technological advancements and workforce trends will require HR leaders to have an acute vision for the future and be prepared to work with business leaders to respond to the fast changing needs of businesses.

It is going to be more apparent to the business how HR delivers real value within the organisation, as increasing globalisation will require a workforce with greater responsiveness, flexibility and creativity.

In the next 10 years, the workforce will evolve to be more digital, mobile and multi-generational. Increased competition and complexity in businesses and industries will continue to transform jobs and redefine future workplaces.

This requires HR to put in place strategies which will enable a diversified workforce to stay connected, promote work mobility and crossborder collaboration and provide continuous learning opportunities while we define the talent pipelines for the future.

The HR of the future will be managing and connecting with a workforce where communication, collaboration, and engagement happen without boundaries.
