This paper aims to discuss current literature, the focus areas of future HR in academic context, roles of the HR professional, and a model with three key areas for the HR professional which are identified for future use by New Zealand organisations. Trends and developments in HR should not be ignored. Generation Yer’s entering the workforce affects how the HR manager should manage workforces in future. HR’s future is dependant on committed practitioners who are knowledgeable in their field. HR has four distinct areas where they can contribute to add value and they are discussed. In conclusion: HR is not just another job, but a profession that’s on the forefront of business success with leading thinkers and respected executives. The HR value proposition is the blue print for the future of HR.
