Overall review of the current situation of managers at a time of shifting certainties and of a lack of th actual solutions in France. New prospects to understand the training process and widden it to include change management.

Educating staff is crucial to develop in-house expertise. HRM has to offer many flexible Human Resource Training programs that address business development, human resource issues and empowerment.

Rarely do all managers within a company have equal experience, knowledge, skills and work-styles of best practices in HR policies. Training for the future of work affects three deeply connected dimensions of an organization: Work (the what), Workforce (the who), Workplace (the where).
