The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, “Change is the only constant in life.” and it’s so true. Whether personally or professionally, we’ve been dealing with a lot of change over the past few years. So, I thought it appropriate to focus this season of The HR Bartender Show on change management.
HR professionals need to be able to not only help the organization manage change but be able to individually process change at the same time. That’s how HR brings value to the organization.
I’m really delighted to start Season 2 with my friend Steve Browne. Many of you know Steve because of his nationally recognized HR blog called Everyday People and presence on social media. His “day job” is chief people officer at LaRosa’s, Inc., a regional pizzeria restaurant chain in Southwest Ohio with 10 locations and more than 1,100 team members.
Steve often ranks among the most influential voices in human resources. He is the author of two best-selling books, “HR on Purpose!! Developing Deliberate People Passion” and “HR Rising!! From Ownership to Leadership”.
HR professionals must allocate their time to work on the right things. Having a proven change model to rely on can help with the process. The good news is there are many such models available. Choose the one that works best for you. It should include the actual planning phase, implementation strategies, equipping employees with the right tools, and regular communication.

During the show, I mentioned that this isn’t Steve’s first visit to HR Bartender. Steve and I chatted a few years ago on this article about “How to Get Your First Job in Human Resources”. I hope you’ll check it out.
