Evolution of Business in 2020: Changes, Challenges and Opportunities
Since Sarah McCann-Bartlett joined the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) as CEO in February 2020, the world of work has been turned upside down. “It has been an absolute whirlwind,” she tells Kit and JP.
In this episode, Sarah reveals why COVID-19 has been HR’s time to shine, why curiosity is essential for taking a customer-first approach to business, and why she’s on a personal mission to re-brand “soft skills” to “essential skills”. Sarah also outlines what’s next for AHRI and what the lasting legacy of the global pandemic is likely to be. “Expect the unexpected and be prepared for a lot of ‘what-if’s’,” she warns.
