Historically, human resources professionals are not considered thought leaders within their organizations. Stereotypes of HR of only a "support" function can get in the way. However, human resources professionals are well positioned to take on the role of thought leader and can have tremendous impact on people, organizations, and even society, including inspiring innovation and championing change.
As we conclude Season One of HR Fresh Take, we'll chat with our guest, Gary Dumais, Psy.D., Business Psychologist and Human Resource Consultant at Select Human Resources. We will discuss why human resources professionals tend not to be perceived as thought leaders, and how they can be.
Also joining in the discussion are Co-hosts Kaela Blanks and Kena Sears.
This episode is a follow up to an article published in the Philly SHRM newsletter entitled: "Is HR Supposed to Think Differently? How to Be a Thought Leader". Link to link to the article can be found here:
