The time between Christmas and New Year is often referred to as the “Crimbo Limbo” which can often leave us feeling all over the place! I often take this time to reflect on the year and make plans to move positively into the fresh year.
I admit that this year I have struggled to be inspired to write as I would normally. I have felt lost since losing my Nan in June, she is the reason why I have got to where I am in my career, from a young age she always told me to believe in myself and to dream big, so I always did and that is how I have carved a career bigger than I could have imagined.
This year has been difficult for many in our profession, but what it has done is teach us that we cannot relay on traditional ways of working, HR has really had to come out of its shell and find new ways to support people, businesses and teams. This needs to continue into 2022, we need to become more proactive and look to what our organisations need to continue navigating through the pandemic and the challenges it presents.
We have a long way to go, but all of the steps taken all point in the right direction, so take time to reflect, review what you have learnt and plan towards a proactive start tot he New Year. Next December, you’ll thank yourself for it!
There will be plenty more content coming from me over the coming months and with a slight change with more focus on HR careers, changes to working practices and lots of employment updates to keep you in the loop.
Have a wonderful time celebrating the New Year and I will see you all in 2022!
