The Great Reset: How High-Performing Organizations Build HR Business Partnerships to Thrive in the Resilience Economy

We are living in a new, ‘resilience economy’ in which uncertainty has become the norm, and change is constant. This requires a new level of agility from both HR practitioners and the people managers with whom they work to anticipate, rather than simply react to the fluctuating needs of the business and its people. High-value partnerships that set clear priorities through continuous communication and collaboration are now indispensable for sustaining organizations. It’s time to reset the HR-business partnership to allow the organization to thrive through change.
