Abstract:The central theme of this research is employee involvement in Human Resource Management (HRM). Due to the implementation of electronic HRM (e-HRM) and establishment of HR Shared Service Centers (HR SSC’s) in organizations become employees more and more involved in HRM. The goal of this research was therefore to predict future developments in employee involvement. To predict these future developments in employee involvement data of the World Café ‘HRM, technology and innovation’ was analyzed. This World Café took place at 10 November 2015 at the University of Twente. Within this World Café the future of e-HRM, HR SSC’s and employee involvement has been discussed. This research paper describes past developments regarding these three themes. The participants of the World Café consisted of HR managers, HR SSC managers, HR business partners, HRM Consultants and students in HRM. This research provides two interesting new developments. The participants of the World Café predict a changing role for the manager and introduce a new concept: the employee as mini-company. According to them will the boundaries around companies disappear and organizations become loosely coupled networks where employees are contracted for a short period and then leave.
