On Human Enterprise

On Human Enterprise | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
In shaping a career, few questions are as important as how to become more senior. But in most companies, "becoming more senior" is mixed up with different questions like the size of the team one manages, the demonstration of prerequisites for a particular job, and the business's ability to afford a…

Andrew Gerkens's comment, November 26, 2020 1:38 AM
I came across this article at the perfect time Celine. I'm passionate about the opportunity of HR, but have often felt disappointed by the lack of curiosity or willingness to invite or explore different perspectives, experiment or at times, practice what it preaches. Your article has reminded me that I am not alone!
Andrew Gerkens's curator insight, November 26, 2020 1:50 AM

I love, love, love this article. As a passionate advocate for the potential of HR, I am often disappointed by how unwilling the function is to practice what it preaches. We promotes all the fads and terminology like NWOW, FWOW, Future Work, Collaboration .....etc. but doesn't experiment with and for ourselves. We don't invite or explore different perspectives and we make excuses to justify maintaining the status quo or to convince us that we are serving our customers.

 

HR must undertake a journey of cultural evolution if we are to build the (adaptive) capacity required to support our organisations to do the same. Failure to do so puts our people and our organisations at risk.

The neoliberal era is ending. What comes next? | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
In a crisis, what was once unthinkable can suddenly become inevitable. We’re in the middle of the biggest societal shakeup since the second world war. And neoliberalism is gasping its last breath. So from higher taxes for the wealthy to more robust government, the time has come for ideas that seemed impossible just months ago.
