    Will you be an effective human resource professional in 5 years? How will your company’s future success be measured and how will you help ensure the highest levels of employee satisfaction, productivity, and profitability?

    This presentation will share a five year forecast helpful to human resource professionals in the northwestern United States. Organizational development professionals researched the soft skills and strategic initiatives past, present, and needed in the future, identifying both positive and negative patterns of performance. Following a stop, start, continue process, researchers gleaned the best and the worst management practices through interviews and the examination of 8000 documents. Research led to a healthy forecast worthy of consideration.

    This presentation will share the takeaways and other positive coaching, training, and strategic initiatives to consider as we move toward 2020.
