This Episode: HR Collaboration with Julie Turney Of The HR Sound Off Podcast

This week, something strikingly different for the show as Lucinda is in collaboration with Julie Turney and her incredible HR Sound Off Podcast. It’s an empowering conversation between two of the most popular HR podcasts around, and which provides some fascinating insights into such topics as burn-out, how to better take care of ourselves and how we can be better supported as a sector.

Key Takeaways

  • The role of HR professionals has changed dramatically, especially since the COVID pandemic. They now have to wear many more hats when it comes to responsibilities.
  • Burn-out is becoming far too common in HR, and can generally be traced to several causes. Pride, ego, and a lack of delegation. Also, we must remember that we are people, too. It’s okay to ask for support.
  • As professionals, we should always try to add value to others, but in return we must also ourselves be valued. Many see our work as invisible, and yet this only goes to prove that it is working successfully.
  • Many HR professionals can not be strategic if they are not empowered within an organisation. Certainly, management should temper expectations and allow them the autonomy to focus upon what’s really important.

Best Moments

‘HR people really do have to be superheroes’

‘In HR, we’re really terrible at taking care of ourselves’

‘This has a knock-on to the way we value people’

‘When we’re not voicing it, we’re internalising it’
