We recently hosted a series of conversations with leaders in the fields of employee experience, performance management and HR to discuss the impact of the most significant changes in work practices in over a century. We compiled the highlights, tips and tricks, frameworks and inspirational thoughts from the world’s foremost thought leaders in HR.

Kevin Empey, Managing Director of WorkMatters shared his insights on resilience and agility:

“I know the concepts of resilience and agility are thrown around a lot and sometimes they’re used interchangeably. Sometimes people use one or the other or both. I think it’s helpful to separate them and particularly from an HR perspective and a leadership perspective, even as an individual as well, to decide upon what is resilience? What is Agility? Resilience is typically about that capacity to absorb shock isn’t it? Resilience is the mental, the physical, the emotional capacity to deal with difficulty if you like. It’s a survival instinct kind of thing. It’s a survival capability, like the roots of a tree that look like they could survive anything, no matter what’s thrown at them. But the thriving bit is probably more the agility. It’s more forward looking, isn’t it? It’s about sensing and responding to what’s going on. It’s about forward movement and momentum towards towards making things better. And towards making positive changes.”
