There’s a better way
of doing HR…
Join a group of HR professionals who are passionate about sharing new and people centric ways of working to change the outdated practices of HR. Who are on a mission to make other people as passionate about the future of HR as they are, determined to challenge the norms.
Dynamic HR Community is a digital community, meeting monthly to share ideas, inform how others are working to disrupt HR, to make it more consumer-led through sharing latest thinking, and trends.
For HR leaders who want to make an impact
Imagine HR, as the leading force in business for change, creating the pathways for the organisation in a disrupted world – so, do you want to be “ahead of the curve”, do you want to “go with the flow” or would you rather be “late in the game” and learn from others or, possibly the least attractive option – “do you want change to be done to you”.
We know where we want to be “ahead of the curve” that’s why we created Dynamic HR Community – to share ideas, create the discussions about how to pivot and change HR and support fellow HR professionals who too want to be part of the campaign.
We are on a mission to make other people passionate about the future of HR as we are…
To have a valued network accessible for everyone focussed on changing the outdated practices of HR

Agile HR Mindset
Agile HR Mindset – can software development principles be applied to the development of human talent?
Come along and listen to Agile Coach Laura ReTurner on 21st May who leads our discussion about an Agile HR mindset – in the new world of work, and how some of the principles of tech development can be applied to HR.
From small tech start-ups to large traditional companies, organisations need to be fast, flexible, and digitally empowered to succeed in our rapidly changing business landscape. HR plays a crucial role in helping their people and organisations transform, however, many companies are currently stuck with siloed, compliance-heavy HR processes that can often work in opposition to business success rather than supporting it. The result is a view that HR is too slow, out of touch and sometimes even lacking a human focus.
We’re not suggesting Agile is the answer to all issues – but when people start learning about Agile, they begin to recalibrate their thinking patterns around a new set of beliefs and values.

A shift to Equity
2020 put a raw, but much-needed, spotlight on inclusion and diversity and, this year HR teams need to put a greater focus on equity – as opposed to equality in the workplace.
The way we discuss and approach diversity, equity & inclusion in the workplace is changing. It wasn’t long ago that we only spoke about diversity & inclusion, and before that just diversity. There is no better time to dig deep and establish shared, fundamental understandings of these terms and their meanings. DE&I Specialist Amisha Davda will talk about some of the widespread confusion around the “definitions”, so that we can get on the same page, and then take the next step and create a shared understanding of DE&I together.
A report by Forrester found that workplace belonging leads to a 56% increase in job performance and a 50% reduction in turnover risk. The cornerstone of creating any company community is a shared understanding of DE&I.
Diversity, equity & inclusion are inherently interrelated, but they’re also distinct concepts. When planning your DE&I strategy, understanding their differences is just as important as grasping how they connect. More than that, your specific culture and tone of voice will feed into your own unique definition of each. DE&I is how you make your company values carry real weight.

Breeding customer loyalty in the workplace
Breeding customer loyalty in the workplace – as consumers, we’ve been spoiled not only by excellent service, but also by innovation.
In fact, the very attributes that technology has enabled— simplicity, flexibility, convenience, personalisation, and connection—have come to be what we expect, even demand, as consumers. So how has this translated to the workplace?
We’re seeing a changing set of values from companies’ internal customers—perhaps their most important business asset—as well as requests for more innovation, flexibility, and opportunity. Digital HR has become not just a “nice to have,” but a necessity for an organisation’s future growth and acceleration. And just like a consumer who has a bad experience and moves onto another brand, your employees may also seek new experiences if their expectations are not being met.
Come along and get involved in the discussion, employees are consumers who are their own brand and with technology bringing information at their fingertips, what has emerged is an empowered workforce that is more savvy and well informed. Now more than ever, companies need to step up to be more transparent, agile, and capable of providing their employees more choices.

What HR skills will be most in demand in the future?
What HR skills will be most in demand in the future? How to get ahead: be the face of change
With new challenges at every corner, 2020 has thrown some unprecedented challenges HR’s way. From rapidly changing ways of working, to a contingent and growing gig workforce, and a persisting skills crisis and talent crunch to news that we are in recession – such massive change is escalating the importance of HR’s role within organisations.
Yet, it is no secret, that HR professionals need to upskill. Just under a half (43%) believe their core skillset will erode in the next three years, according to research from Degreed.
Come along and take part in the discussion on 22 October about what are the new skills that are most in demand and how you can shift from a place of uncertainty to empowerment, action, and progress.
