M.S. Research Topic

Hello, good afternoon. Please I wish to find out the challenges facing Human Resources practice in these modern times, which I believe could help in coining a research topic so as to solve a relevant problem and contribute to knowledge. Thanks a lot.

HR Professionals face many challenges. Though the priorities of HR may vary depending on company size and industry, one common factor that continues to be the focus of many HR professionals is talent management. Talent management is often considered the life cycle of talent in a company, from sourcing, recruiting, and hiring an individual to developing their talent and retaining them as an employee.

Research topics can include any aspect of talent management.

Consider focusing on the recruitment challenges facing a particular industry. A hot topic right now is the decline in police recruits. There are arguably many reasons for the decline but the growing anti-police sentiment is considered the main cause in public opinion. A lighter topic would be the deficient in highly skilled IT professionals.

Also, there are currently five generations in the workforce. Analyzing the different generations and the complexities for employers to attract and retain each of them would be an interesting topic to consider.

Lastly, leadership development is a constant struggle within organizations. Consider surveying a group of similar companies regarding their challenges with leadership development. Use the data to propose solutions for their concerns.

Good Luck!
