This Episode: Listening To Our People – with Kendal Parmar

This week, Lucinda is joined by Kendal Parmar, the CEO of Untapped AI, which drives change in organisations, to talk about the “Great Resignation” – if it’s real, and if so how we can do to prevent migrations from our own workplaces by listening more closely to our people.

Key Takeaways

  • Studies have shown that one in four people are planning to leave their jobs in the near future. It generally takes about six months to emotional reconcile this decision within ourselves.
  • The business landscape is changing in remarkable ways. Employees are now far more valuable than the positions they hold, or the organisations that employ them.
  • The pandemic has made many realise that there is far more to life than just working. The time we have been given has forced a wholesale readjustment in priorities.
  • HR’s role is to support the evolving role of leaders in the workplace, as they adjust to the evolving needs of employees. An entirely new way of leading people is emerging, one that encourages listening and adapting swiftly.
