It has been another ‘interesting’ year for the HR profession. The last two years have seen seismic changes in the world of work that would normally take years to evolve such as the move to hybrid working, the great resignation, labour shortages in key sectors and the enormous impact technology is having.
Also there have been opportunities! HR has seemingly earned its place at the board table and organisations are perhaps at last seeing the impact the profession can have on organisational performance.
So what can HR professionals expect from 2022 and what can we take away from 2021? Rob Moss is the Editor of Personnel Today, the UK’s leading independent HR website. Rob is passionate about the opportunities the past two years have created and believes that the HR profession is in a unique position to make the world of work fairer, more equitable and fundamentally more trusting.
Personnel Today.com frequently attracts more than 500,000 people per month, mainly from the UK but with a significant international audience as well making Rob uniquely placed to give us his review of the year.

Why Covid-19 has largely been positive for the HR profession
Rob’s HR highlights of the year
The employment law cases that continue to impact upon the UK’s HR scene
