The HR mindset, for me, encompasses change and promotes growth. Since the introduction of HR, the demands and requirements of businesses have changed and will continue to change, subsequently evolving a fast need for new ideas and thinking.
As HR professionals, this means more focus on adding worth to the profession, from the entry-level practitioners to senior executives, as we each, in our own unique way, reinvent HR—beginning with a change in thinking.
We need a shift from a fixed mindset to one of growth—to take proactive measures to broaden our skills and perspectives while creating learning opportunities and institutions that can promote a learning culture. Lastly, HR professionals should embrace every opportunity to bring about transformation in their way of thinking and provide a more meaningful and continuous contribution to HR.
