Nowadays uncertainty is one of the main issues organizations and employees are dealing with. In this podcast episode of HRchat show, Steve Brown discusses about the role of HR and how professionals can lead employees and organizations through uncertain times.
Brown reflects on the importance of HR in such scenarios. HR has a great responsibility moving the organization forward. Leading change and behavior through uncertainty is possible when HR performs active listening in order to adapt processes to discover and solve people's needs.
When HR professionals enact this supporting role at the organization they are able to strengthen connections between employees and assist individuals and teams when possible. Building firewalls to tackle increasing common concerns is key to build strong teams. Brown argues that HR professionals should fill these gaps with continuous adaptation that will lead the whole organization forward helping employees to successfully overcome this complexity.
