The Josh Bersin Academy’s Big Reset Working Groups
In early May, the Josh Bersin Academy invited senior HR executives to come together and talk about how they were responding to the coronavirus pandemic. Their input resulted in the creation of four time-bound Big Reset working groups comprised of approximately 150 HR and talent leaders from around the world and across all industry sectors. The groups met weekly to collaborate and share the latest thinking and approaches related to culture and organizational resilience, changing business and workforce models, new fit-for-purpose learning and development, and post-COVID return-to-work playbooks.
«Participating in the Big Reset initiative has given me fresh perspective and new ideas that I can bring to my own organization,» said Dan Strode of Banco Santander. «We are a global bank, so hearing how other executives are handling issues specific to different geographies has been especially helpful.»
A second working group sprint will begin in mid-July and ending in August. Specific topics to be addressed will be decided by participants. For further information on the Big Reset initiative and its working groups (limited to practicing senior executives), email [email protected].
