Episode Info: To celebrate the 25th Episode of the HR Uprising Lucinda is proud to welcome a member of the ‘Twitterati’: HR Practitioner, influencer, author and speaker from the US: Steve Browne.   Steve has had almost 30 years of experience in HR and is absolutely passionate about the power of being ‘people-centric’ as an HR professional. He shares personal anecdotes and stories from his best-selling business book ‘HR on Purpose’ and gives an insight into what drives his passion for the profession.  One of Steve’s natural talents is collaboration and building networks and we explore the differences in networking styles on each side of the ‘pond’ and feel encouraged to reach out and encourage others to be part of the #HRUprising.   Despite his huge social media presence, Steve is the epitome of humility and ‘Keeping it Real’. We hope you enjoy our ‘Silver Jubilee Episode’ with Steve Browne. Don’t forget to link in and connect with him and the rest of the HR network out there, it is a great place to learn and grow.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  It’s obvious, but we must always remember that if we help the team thrive and grow, we help the business grow..  We should stop thinking that the only way of having a voice in the organisation is by climbing the ladder. We all have a voice, let’s use it.  HR on Purpose is about being Strategic – it is about being the Chess player rather than the Checkers player. It is also about understanding the business requirements while at all times being human.  Go out of your way to encourage others, when we do that, we also fill ourselves up  Make time to network – even if on a small scale, remember to be genuine, always follow through and connect people with a purpose.  Brits are a bit more reserved on social media than the US but that doesn’t mean we can’t encourage each other.  Always be courageous and brave in what you’re doing.  BEST MOMENTS  “I’d like to see HR embrace who they are, own who they are, and show people how wonderful is it as a field.”  “You do what you can instead of worrying what you can’t do.”   “Every person you meet is different. Everybody has different life experiences, different backgrounds. You can’t just be one flavour to everybody.”  “A strategic person needs to get all the aspects of people.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  HR on Purpose: Developing Deliberate People Passion by Steve Browne -   Join the HR Uprising Linked In Group here:   You can access additional free HR Resources via the Actus Software website link below.
