HR teams have had the most important seat at the leadership table over the past few years as we’ve experienced unprecedented levels of disruption and change in where we work, why we work, and how we work. It empowered new people-centered agendas within the worlds most powerful organizations that were long overdue, and the HR world rose to the challenge. But as economic concerns have emerged, that level of influence is being challenged. HR teams are once again falling victim to budget cuts, reduced influence, and outdated ‘fire fighting’ operating models that are inefficient, short sighted, and unsustainable. As a result, people, culture, and talent are once again at risk of being reduced to the ‘soft side’ of the business.
We believe that people-centric organizations have an unfair advantage compared to their competitors, and HR teams hold the keys to unlocking that advantage. But to achieve that advantage in today’s climate, it requires rethinking HR from the ground up. We work with HR leaders to create more durable HR organizations that are able to work with greater agility, lead with more strategic business acumen, pilot with a more experiment driven approach, and share stories proudly to shift the HR perception over time.
Great work on all the phases: the engagement, collateral, workshop design, and stellar delivery today. It was a very important moment for the ELT, and we all agreed that the most important thing was for us to build momentum from here.
