#Nextchat: HR New Year’s Resolutions


It’s a new year and another chance to make personal and professional resolutions that will affect positive change in your life and in the lives of those around you.

HR professionals can incorporate personal and workplace resolutions into their daily or weekly schedules. A resolution such as taking the time to walk around the organization each week to get to know employees better can have ripple effects toward improving employee relations, employee engagement and the corporate culture. 

Maybe your New Year’s resolution is to get a Fitbit and to use it not only to improve your own health, but also to create a workplace wellness program for your organization.

Resolutions don’t have to be complicated. Perhaps you just want to read more, listen more or smile more. Simple goals can have enormous return on investment.

And what about the HR profession? How should it change and grow in 2016? What should HR stop doing—and start doing—in 2016?

Resolutions are never easy to keep, but with careful consideration of how they affect larger personal and professional goals, and how they might help others, the chances for success become greater.
