HR Pyramids
HR Trend Institute
September 07, 2020
The Pyramid
After the circle and the arrow, the pyramid is probably the most used shape in HR visuals. We found HR pyramids everywhere. Unfortunately we had to report a lot of pyramid abuse. In many visuals it is not clear why a pyramid is used. A good example of the proper use of a pyramid is Maslows pyramid with the hierarchy of needs. The basic needs at the bottom, more “luxury” needs at the top. The higher in the pyramid, the smaller the size of the people in the group. One big group is missing in Maslow’s pyramid: the group of people whose most basic needs are not met.

A collection of Performance Management Cycles
HR Trend Institute
August 19, 2020
We all loved the performance management cycle!
Performance management is changing. Almost every HR professional has been involved with performance management cycle design. The HR Trend Institute, in collaboration with The Muesum of HR, is preparing an exhibition of performance management cycles.

In this article we present an overview of nearly 50 performance management cycles. The first conclusions: it is a rather boring collection and the similarity between the cycles is big. The variety is caused by the level of detail of the process that is provided.

HR in 2025
HR Trend Institute
July 27, 2020
Last week I was interviewed as part of a research into “HR in 2025”. This was an interesting conversation, and in the article I want to capture some thoughts I had, before I forget them (and before I change my mind..). It is by no means my intention to summarise the interview, the researchers can do a better job, and I am looking forward to the report that will be published somewhere this fall.

Establishing Workplace Habits
HR.com
April 16, 2020
The Power of Habits - Although I like variety and change, I am also a big fan of well-established habits. Part of my time is spent on daily, weekly or annual habits. Examples: Daily: meditating (with Headspace). A cold shower. No meat. Seven hours sleep. Weekly: 3-4 times running, total at least 30K. Bi-weekly: Ajax home match (during the season). Annually: Certain runs (like the Posbankloop and the Zevenheuvelenloop). A couple of weeks in the sun during the winter. Habits at Work Habits can be powerful, also at work.

One year ago, on 29 November 2014, I published “9 emerging HR Trends for 2015”. Many of the trends I mentioned end 2014 were very visible in 2015. The changes in performance management, the transfer to mobile, the use of communities for recruitment and people analytics were on the agenda in many organisations. Some trends moved very slow. The end of PowerPoint seems to be wishful thinking. I have been in many meetings, conferences, round tables and symposia this year, and I must have seen more than 5,000 PowerPoint slides.

HR Trends Today
Hi5 Technologies
March 21, 2019
Tom Haak has always worked in HR. Based in the Netherlands, he worked his way up from a trainee to a senior position at Phillips Electronics, went on to other multinational companies like Aon and KPMG and later took the position of global HR Director for Arcadis, a leading global natural and built asset design & consultancy firm. He founded the HR Trend Institute in 2014.

Tom transformed himself into a trend-watcher and reads, speaks & breathes HR trends. He argues that a lot of the skills/principles necessary for HR can be learnt in tertiary institutions (like how to read statistics, how to use algorithms, etc.), but the HR industry is always in flux. Keeping up with the changing trends in HR is a continued education, beyond your degree or diploma.

"Das HR steht vor einer Ara voller grosser Möglichkeiten"
HR Today Blog
February 19, 2019
HR-Trendforscher gibt es viele. Doch Trends zu erkennen oder gar vorauszusagen ist als HR-Mensch gar nicht so einfach. Vor allem das «neutral sein» fällt den Beobachtern oft schwer. Diese Feststellung macht auch Tom Haak. Der Holländer ist Gründer des HR Trend Institute, das jedes Jahr eine der wichtigsten HR-Trendstudien herausgibt.

«Ich denke, Sie sind in gewisser Hinsicht eher ein Trend-Herbeiwünscher als ein Trend-Beobachter.» Diesen Satz musste sich Tom Haak anhören – berechtigterweise, wie er heute findet. Denn einige seiner HR-Trends sind schon eher Wunschdenken, als dass sie auf Fakten und gründlichen Recherchen basieren. Im Interview beschreibt Tom Haak die HR-Trends 2019, wobei künstliche Intelligenz und auch die Persönlichkeit eine grosse Rolle spielen. Das Gespräch mit dem Holländer wurde auf Englisch geführt.
