WE’RE ON A MISSION!
The world of work has changed forever and so has the meaning we place upon it.
And whilst the effects of the pandemic have certainly added to the pace of change, the signs that we needed a new way of doing business have existed for several years.
Today businesses across all sectors and of all sizes are facing numerous challenges but the common thread that links all of these challenges together is people. It is people who ultimately must face them and it’s people who will have to overcome them.
Clever business owners have always understood that they achieve much better outcomes when they treat all the people they deal with with respect and as humans with individual needs and feelings.
Which is why we are on a mission to ‘put human’ into 1 million UK businesses!
IT’S TIME FOR A DIFFERENT APPROACH!
The Human Business advocates a different approach to doing business. An approach that recognises the many challenges we are all facing but that tackles them in a sustainable and human centred manner.
And whilst it might be a longstanding idea or belief that emotions should be kept out of the workplace – that whatever’s going on in your personal life, you should leave it at home so you can bring your most productive self to work – in a year when home has become work and people have become so exhausted they couldn’t possibly leave their personal experiences at the door — it’s clear that this old-fashioned idea can’t hold up much longer.
The Human Business Care Label is an accreditation that recognises purpose-driven businesses. Businesses dedicated to creating profits whilst also ensuring they are actively benefiting society, because people, planet and profit are completely interwoven.
If you genuinely care about your people, your customers, your prospects, your community, and the planet, then we invite you to be recognised as such.
Join a movement aiming to ‘put human’ into 1 million UK business’s, one person at a time, and together let’s make a difference!
Finola McDonnell, the chief communications and marketing officer of the Financial Times, recently said, “The business of business has changed and you have to be thinking differently if you want to succeed.“
If you look at the scale of problems the world faces, whether it’s climate change or the widening inequalities in society, it is clear that more is needed from business.
We believe the world needs more purpose-driven companies, dedicated to driving profits whilst benefiting society, because people, planet and profit are completely interwoven.
So whether you’re the director of a large business or a small company, if you’re a solopreneur or a manager or an employee or indeed an HR professional, learning how to build more meaningful relationships and to better communicate with the people we come into contact with, is not only a skill that will benefit every single area of both our professional and personal lives, but more importantly ‘future proof‘ business from the changes yet to come.
Good business isn’t just about making money it’s about doing good too. Good for our colleagues, our customers, our shareholders, our community and our planet and nothing is more powerful than having a supportive and collaborative community behind you as you introduce any type of change.
Terry Malloy and Phil Joseph, Directors of The Human Business say “We believe now is the time for a different approach: an approach that recognises the challenges we have to face but that tackles them in a sustainable and human centred manner.
Creating a human business is not a “tick box process” it requires a commitment to live and breathe the fundamental truth that “our people are our greatest assets.
So whilst putting human into business is certainly not easy we believe it is always worth the endeavour because when inspired people come together the impossible becomes achievable.”
We have some exciting things planned for this Autumn including an online summit on 21st September and the launch of our ‘Human Business Care label’ for people who want to demonstrate their active support for the mission.
