Abstract: This paper is the result of research carried out to identify trends of the Human Resources Management Model in brazilian organizations. In order to do this, we employed research methodology known as DELPHI, which consists of gradually adjusting the perceptions of specialists. Respondents were selected using criteria that characterized them as opinion leaders in human resource management. Having consulted more than 160 people we observed that themes such as the management of competences, corporate education and encouragement for organizational learning will be gradually assimilated by companies. One of our main conclusions is that the change process in Human Resoucers has ceased to be reactive. Data relating to changes that occurred during the 80s and 90s showed that the function concentrated on internal restructuring, on reducing the number of specialist employees, on encouraging the outsourcing of operational processes and on establishing a new model for looking after in-house customers.
