HR and Change

With Professor Nick Holley

We will have an initial conversation looking at our first piece of research in 2016: HR’s role in developing a culture within organisations that thrives on change.

In speaking to our members, it seems everyone is going through continuous change – not just the traditional programmatic change but transformational change. This change is being driven by tectonic shifts in the environment in which we operate, increasing global competition, huge changes in technology, major demographic shifts, etc. This is having a major impact on organisations with increasing levels of change fatigue and stress, but the answer isn’t to sit on the beach like King Canute and hope we can turn back the tides of change. We need HR to step up to the challenge and play a key role in helping organisations turn change into opportunity. The implications of this go beyond how we manage change to how we create organisations that thrive on change. In our research, we will explore HR’s role in creating a change-enabled culture in organisations, where agility and resilience become key qualities, and the implications of this on what HR does and the HR people who have to do it.
