Change continues to be a prominent theme in the working world – so much so that employers are having to address the rising tide of change fatigue amongst their employees and themselves. That’s why this month we have chosen to read Reset: A Leader’s Guide to Work in an Age of Upheaval by Johnny C. Taylor, Jr.

Johnny is the president and chief executive officer of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), and in 2018 was appointed as the chair of the President’s Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities. With a deep understanding of the HR landscape, Johnny has written a book that has transformed the way employers select, retain, and train their employees in a business environment that is consistently changing.

In his book, Johnny pools together more than 70 years of experience and expertise from across a range of sources, and this is further propelled by extensive original SHRM research to deliver an honest, informative, and forward-thinking vision which allows leaders to reimagine their company cultures in the midst of upheaval. With hybrid and remote working still finding its footing, the increasing importance of diversity, equity and inclusion, and new technological advancements making their way into the workplace, employers need to understand now more then ever the best way of recruiting and retaining top talent on a global scale.

To achieve this, employers have to challenge their underlying assumptions and attempt to reset themselves and their organizational cultures. Johnny draws a lot on the pandemic acting as a springboard for this change, and as we continue to deal with the ripple effects that lockdown had across the world of work, it is more important then ever to understand how to prepare your teams for upheaval so to avoid the potential fatigue and turnover that comes with it.

In this sense, Reset acts as a call to action and a strategic roadmap which helps to deliver practical strategies for finding and keeping talent needed to make businesses thrive, and offers dynamic tools to continue to sustain that success in the long run.
