Workplace Leadership in an Age of Upheaval

​Even for a profession so adept at managing crises, HR continues to face unprecedented changes and challenges at every turn and in nearly every aspect of work, workers and workplaces. So the timing could hardly be better for the release of a new book by SHRM President and Chief Executive Officer Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP: RESET: A Leader's Guide to Work in an Age of Upheaval (PublicAffairs, 2021). Businesses must evolve in challenging times, he says, and HR—the profession and the people—is where innovation must happen.

This message is delivered with candor and urgency, supported by real-life stories. RESET is presented as the definitive playbook for today's new world of work. Leaders at all levels must know the right strategies and solutions, Taylor says, not only to navigate the extraordinary changes now underway, but also to make the necessary "reset" for rebuilding nimble, resilient workplaces in the future.

The book is informed by extensive original SHRM research and more than 70 years of SHRM experience and expertise. It challenges business leaders' underlying assumptions about workers and the workplace, delivers practical strategies for finding and keeping talent, and introduces dynamic tools to sustain that success over the long haul.

Chapters:

  • A Message to Leaders.
  • The Human in Human Resources.
  • Creating a Culture That Works.
  • Finding and Keeping Great Talent.
  • The Power of the People You Overlook.
  • Building Inclusive Workplaces.
  • Bridging the Skills Gaps.
  • Redefining the Employee Experience.
  • Metrics That Matter.

 
All author proceeds benefit the SHRM Foundation, which is committed to empowering HR as a social force for change.

RESET: A Leader's Guide to Work in an Age of Upheaval is one of more than 100 HR-related books approved for SHRM professional development credits (PDCs) toward recertification. Credential-holders can read a book, write a brief essay and gain 3 PDCs—details here.
