This edition’s feature article, “6 Megatrends Changing the Face of HR and Business,” examines the need “to provide a more ‘human’ employee experience that strengthens connections between people and teams and ultimately drives stronger employee and company performance.” In “What HR Must Do to Meet Growing Business Challenges,” Karen Minicozzi outlines steps that HR leaders can take to strengthen their influence and position in a rapidly changing business world and to help their organizations be more successful.
In “‘Leadership’ Isn’t ‘Management,’” David Flotten presents a cautionary tale about conflating “being a good employee” with “being a good manager.” And in “The Right Way to Deliver Negative Feedback,” Ashley MacInnis offers strategies to help managers fulfill one of their most difficult—and most important—responsibilities.
