Thriving in uncertain times: How can HR lead, learn, and remain resilient?

In the latest episode of the HR on the Offensive podcast, hosts Chris and Chris Horton welcome Aaisha Knights, Chief People Officer of LMAX Group, to discuss how HR leaders can support and develop their teams during uncertain times. The LMAX Group is a company that specialises in financial technology. They operate different platforms where people can trade traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies, and metals. 

Aaisha shares her experience in the HR space, emphasising the increasing demand for support and guidance from line managers who are navigating the changing trends and expectations in the field.  

The discussion then turns to the topic of professional development, with Aaisha highlighting the importance of continuous learning. She mentions the value of allocating time for learning and how it can reduce the need for hiring new talent by upskilling existing employees. However, although not everyone may be inclined to pursue formal courses, employees and leaders should at least stay curious and adaptable in an uncertain landscape. 

How can an organisation build a culture of resilience and how does such a culture foster innovation?

Building a resilient culture starts with creating a sense of togetherness within teams, where individuals feel supported and can rely on each other. The concept of “fail fast” is discussed, highlighting the importance of embracing mistakes as opportunities for learning and growth. 

Overall, the episode provides valuable perspectives on leadership, professional development, and resilience in the context of constantly changing workplace. Listen now for practical insights on how to encourage a continuous learning mindset that can help your employees boost productivity and navigate the evolving landscape of HR.
