‘HR’s role in a crisis’

We live in a world of increasing uncertainty where small issues can quickly escalate into a major crisis.  All too often leaders focus on protecting the business and the share price often neglecting to think about the impact and fallout on their staff. Internal mismanagement and poor communication of issues can be more damaging to a business’ employer brand than the issue itself. HR needs to step up and challenge this mindset and demonstrate that a crisis can actually be an opportunity to increase employee trust.

Carrie Birmingham spent the last ten years as the HR Director for News UK where she was involved in handling many diverse and very public issues including the unexpected closure of the News of the World, charges of phone hacking and over 20 employees being arrested for paying public officials. She learnt a lot about what can happen when a crisis puts your business under public scrutiny and will be sharing those experiences and learnings with members and guests of the London HR Connection at our July event.
