HR Challenges in the 21st Century

The greatest challenge is matching the 'existing job opportunities' with the ever rising population's demand.
Through technological advancements there are alternative ways of doing things than by labour. On the other hand, new technology has created a demand for highly technically skilled employees.
The irony is whereas jobs shrink and population expands, technological innovation expands at an even higher rate, enabling organizations to discover newer and more efficient ways of doing things.
As such, there is mismatch between rising opportunities, technological expansion and new enlightened labour force striving to join the labour market.
