“Putting People First” is more commonly preached but less followed in reality. What we observe is corporate executives and HR managers have been offering good lip service to this idea and advocating the principles to place people at the epicentre of an organisation success. However, in reality, a lot more is easier said than done.
This piece seeks to look beyond the “people first” adage and talks about the challenges to infusing transformation in the workplace culture. A healthy workplace culture attracts and retains the best talent, since the people are satisfied in their job roles and happy. Indeed, there is no counter thought on why not to place people first.
