The article examines how societal change will impact employers manage people in the future. The author believes that a maintenance approach to management is not enough to steer an enterprise through a period of rapid social change influenced by external forces such as demographic flux and growing environmental concerns. The author concludes that the future of work is shaped by people and ideas, sometimes working beyond the boundaries of human resource.
