My speciality (Rob Williams Assessment) is designing bespoke psychometric tests so I had already gained some HR change knowledge from introducing new recruitment processes. Reading this book expanded my understanding by covering similar transformation issues to those my start-up clients manage: dealing with constant change and understanding exactly who their key customers are.
When I first read HR Disrupted I couldn't believe that there was someone out there brave enough to write about how HR had been doing it wrong which was something that I had been thinking for years! The HR Change Toolkit is more of the same, with really practical advice to implement a new way of doing things. The premise is simple treat your employees like Adults, Consumers and Humans. Its a very easy read, full of useful further resources. I am fortunate enough to work for a progressive employer so I am having so much fun implementing some new ideas.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book as much as the last one. The practical workbook was a great addition. It allows for reflection about how things are done and what you want to change. I now have some actual plans to implement with my business. Lucy’s view of HR in the workplace is refreshing and inspiring. Well worth a read and to refer back to.
Just read The HR Change Toolkit - thank you Lucy Adams! It’s brilliant.. love her writing style, fresh approach to HR and it made me feel like I’m not going mad in my recent frustrations with 'old-school' and treacle in HR. One call out that I've already been sharing with colleagues at work is the "EACH" concept. Trish Hodgson
Engaging read with lots of practical tips. If you’ve been thinking about making some changes within your HR Department, this book will help you reflect on those changes and inspire you to get started with practical tools. Some great food for thought. Definitely recommend!
