Does this sound like you?

I need to better understand the new technologies and trends affecting work


Do you know your AI from your agile? Do bots terrify rather than tantalise you? Is data more daunting than dazzling? Digitisation is dramatically changing business models, customer interaction and stakeholder expectations. You know you need to better understand digital HR and the ‘future of work’ – the new technologies, business and HR models, digital transformation and changing work patterns that are impacting work right now. But you don't know where to start

I struggle to find time to invest in myself and am overwhelmed by all the clutter out there

You know continuous learning is today’s critical factor to survive and thrive. But you're struggling to stay on top of the day-to-day tasks you need to handle and are worried you're being left behind when it comes to upskilling yourself. You've spent countless hours searching through the gigabytes of content vying for your attention but find it hard to cut through the clutter to find the right information to help you. You know you should widen your network. But you feel that there’s just no time.

I am interested in the digital changes but am unsure how it impacts me and my organisation


Being yesterday’s compliance function no longer cuts it. Today’s HR is agile, data-driven, digital, employee- and customer-centric and business focused.You recognise the speed of change in the workplace but are unsure how new trends and technologies will impact your organisation and people function. You know you need to help your HR team prioritise correctly for the new working world. Is your HR driving change or being driven by it? Are you pushing for success?

If it does, then you know how difficult it can be to access the right information easily and to best prioritise your time and spend – for yourself, your HR team and your organisation. 

The People Space is designed to help simplify the complexity,  enabling you to continually reinvent yourself and your team to deliver high impact, sustainable value in organisations where people flourish.

A message from our founder Siân Harrington

Do you feel overwhelmed? If you do, you're not alone. HR and learning and development professionals feel overwhelmed by stress at least once a month, according to research. 


You only have to look inside an HR leader's brain to see why. You have to deal with a complexity of issues today. You are always on. And yet the changing nature of work means you need to learn more all the time: more technologies, more working practices, more business models. Not only that, you need to unlearn so much of what got you to where you are today if you are to thrive in the future.


How do you do this when the pace of change is exponential? How can you get up to speed when you just don’t have time? Especially when there’s so much hype out there. Just Google ‘future of work’ – and then work your way through the 2,960,000,000 results! 

I get it! As an award-winning HR and business editor, company director and people leader, I’ve spent years trying to keep on top of the transformative changes in my sector. I've never known anything but a disruptive working world!

During this time I realised I could not help others grow if I didn’t grow myself, and thus began my passion for self-learning. I had to unlearn ‘the way things are always done’ and teach myself new tools and models to survive in the digital world. I had to decide what’s worth pursuing and what’s not. All while managing people and doing the day job. It was exhausting!

How great it would have been if I could have  easily accessed independent information and a trusted network to help me better understand the changes going on and to prioritise my time, choices and actions. That's what inspired us to build The People Space. To help you to shortcut the time and combat all the digital noise to get Digital Fast and to be future ready, professionally and personally. We remove the clutter and focus on the issues that matter – today and tomorrow. Think of us as your concierge for curiosity, context and connections!
