Candice McGlen is an organisational and talent management consultant supporting mid-sized and large enterprises. She pioneered the category where social impact and HR meet. She’s the author of Engage Us Now! which highlights how grassroots organising principles can be applied in businesses, to create a dynamic culture of engagement and commitment.
When discussing employee culture, much focus has been put on agility, or the ability to respond to change. But to remain relevant and competitive, organisations must also consciously lead the change. In this way, there is much leadership teams can learn from social change movements, where authentic purpose, a belief in people power and the removal of barriers to participation mean that grassroots mobilisation can have real impact.
