Today we're joined by Larry McAlister, a three-time Head of Human Resources and a natural-born leader in the HR space.
Larry currently runs the Corporate Humanist Consultancy, where he advises on tech-based products-in-development and helping CHROs and growth-minded leaders build transformative talent strategies.
Larry most recently served as VP of Global Talent at NetApp, and has been named in the Top 50 Human Resources Professional Awards and is consistently sought after for his transformation and thought leadership in HR.
In our conversation today, we explore some of the key principles in Larry's work, including the importance of well-being and mental fitness, how HR leaders can drive bottom line ROI by fostering a culture of well-being, and the role of technology in creating a more people-centric approach to organizational culture. We also discuss how everyone in an organization can be empowered to contribute to this culture, regardless of their seniority.
Larry's new book, "The Power to Transform: A Field Guide to Building a Human-Centered, Tech-Enabled Work Culture," explores how NetApp embraced the future by transforming its culture, incorporating best HR practices and cutting-edge tech to build a mold that leaders of all stripes can easily follow.
The book, which hasn't even been fully released yet, is already a #1 International Best Seller! If you're interested, click here to pre-order it for just 99¢.
