HR Disrupted: It's time for something different
The central question this book sets out to answer 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.
Lucy Adams is on a mission to help organisations bring their human resources departments into the 21st century. Through her agency, Disruptive HR, she aims to provoke the HR community into creating new ways to support businesses in today’s complex and ambiguous world. In doing so she challenges leaders and HR professionals to learn from sources as varied as management theory, consumer organisations, marketing, neuroscience, and the latest thinking on motivation and reward. She also addresses how businesses can deal with public scrutiny, and advises them on leadership and change.Lucy was HR director at the BBC during one of its most turbulent periods. Responsible for all aspects of employee relations, reward, training, and development, she also reduced the corporation’s management by over 30%. In her five-year tenure Lucy witnessed four director generals come and go, oversaw the move to the Salford site, and coped with numerous and very public crises, including executive payoffs and the Savile scandal.Prior to working at the BBC Lucy was group HR director at Serco, the government services organisation; this came after a period working for the law firm Eversheds.Along with her business partner, Lucy runs workshops and consults on many topics within the HR arena. She specialises in helping HR and other business professionals to step back from their old assumptions about motivating people and to see more creative and effective ways of engaging employees.
