HR has lost its way and needs to find a new direction.
The central question HR maverick Lucy Adams sets out to answer in this book is: if we are to survive and thrive in this new, volatile business world, how do we lead, manage, engage and support our employees in a radically different way?
HR departments, and companies, need to transform their approach. This entails not simply tinkering with the process or the mechanics, but taking a completely fresh look at the entire scenario. It’s the difference between spending hours deciding how many grades there should be in an employee grading system, and asking if grading people actually increases their ability to perform better in the first place.
To achieve this change, Disruptive HR has three pillars:
1. Treating employees as adults not children
2. Treating employees as consumers or customers (not a one-size-fits-all approach)
3. Treating employees as human beings
EACH: Employees as Adults, Consumers and Human beings. (Each of us is different, each of us deserves better.)
So what happens when you read this book? First, there’s the lightbulb moment: ‘I do that and I hadn’t even realised it’. Then you’ll see what this means for you and your organisation, with practical tools, ideas and techniques so you can start making changes immediately.
And finally, the hard bit: this book will help you introduce this new thinking to others in your business.
