RESET to Reimagine a Brighter Future for Work and the Workplace

Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP

SHRM President & CEO

The pandemic has upended everything about the workplace, but far and away the biggest challenge facing leaders isn’t technology, innovation, or even leadership: It’s engendering a culture that readily finds, develops, and engages the right talent to thrive now and in the future.

Informed by more than 70 years of SHRM experience and expertise and propelled by extensive original research, RESET delivers a candid and forward-thinking vision for leaders to reimagine their company cultures in a time of global upheaval and presents data-driven strategies to make the necessary foundational reset of all things work. Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, President and Chief Executive Officer of SHRM – the Society for Human Resource Management, is the right voice at the right time to challenge long-held assumptions and lead the revolution to build better workplaces for a better world.

All author proceeds benefit the SHRM Foundation, which is committed to empowering HR as a social force for change.
