Agencies set to cash in on HR increase. Recruitment agencies are likely to benefit as businesses� HR departments increasingly divide their work into ever-more specialised functions and outsource areas such as recruiting, says management guru Kjell Nordstr�m.
�I believe in work specialisation, and I believe it will continue. While HR has usually been done in-house I�m not sure that will be in the case in the future,� Nordstr�m told Recruiter.
�HR is becoming so much of an area to understand, to be updated, in line with the time. HR today in general is a very legalistic thing. It�s all the laws you have to keep track of. Work specialisation based on knowledge will become more of an issue than it is today.�
Nordstr�m was a speaker at Hay Group�s Leadership for a Complex World conference in London. He is best known for the books Karaoke Capitalism and Funky Business he co-wrote with Jonas Ridderstr�le. RECRUITER
