SHRM Live: HR Influencers Ignite Changes in the Workplace

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) broadcast “SHRM Live” on Feb. 1, a livestreamed event in which business and HR leaders talked with SHRM staff about how HR is creating better workplaces.

“If we get it right—if we transform work—we have the capacity to create true social change,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and CEO of SHRM.

Take the City of Pittsburgh’s response to the #MeToo movement: Janet Manuel, SHRM-CP, director of HR for the city, told the SHRM Live audience the city government implemented bystander training to empower workers to speak up when they saw co-workers being harassed. Training to “follow the rules so we don’t get in trouble,” wasn’t working, she said.
