The HR world is changing faster than ever. Informative, sometimes controversial and always entertaining, Natal Dank of PXO Culture and Tom Haak of the HR Trend Institute look at the hot topics impacting HR.
How to become an HR trendsetter and influencer
You need to keep up with the latest HR trends. But what should you do with the information and how do you become an HR trendsetter and influencer rather than just a trendwatcher in HR People & Culture?
In this episode of Talking HR Trends with Natal & Tom, Natal Dank from PXO Culture and Tom Haak of the HR Trend Institute look at why it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and case studies, how to do this and what to do with the information once you have it. This is essential if you're going to be seen as a thought leader in the HR domain of your business.
Look beyond the field of HR for inspiration - other disciplines, science, arts.
Know what issue you want to tackle otherwise you might get lost just looking for trends.
Don't just copy other organisations - every situation is different.
Self-managed (or self-organising or autonomous) teams are a hot business topic at the moment. But what does the term self-managed team really mean and are self-managed teams really achievable or just a pipedream?
Natal Dank and Tom Haak (of the HR Trend Institute) explain that self-managed teams are indeed possible but it’s not easy and they don’t come about by accident. This ‘Talking HR Trends with Natal & Tom’ episode also looks at the perhaps unexpected and truly exciting new roles HR has in helping teams become autonomous.
