Exploring the role of HR in Creative industry SME's

David Johnston shares his thoughts on the role of HR in Creative Industry SME's and asks for your help completing a quick survey so that we can provide some targeted research to better support you.

I’ve had some really interesting and challenging conversations over the last few weeks - seems a real appetite out there to invest, do things differently and drive positive change.

We’re hearing increasingly from our smaller creative clients across music, talent management, arts, publishing who want to address the really pertinent people and HR issues: real diversity and inclusion, mental wellbeing, organisational change, pivoting business services, supporting remote management and remote working. As well as the additional challenges a return to the office and coming back from furlough will introduce. Not easy for small teams with limited support and often no dedicated HR resource.

If we can help expand your HR network and share insight, make introductions or recommendations, Emma Richardson and I would love to hear from you.

If you run a business or are responsible for people issues, we'd be really grateful if you could fill in the survey. We look forward to discussing the insights and supporting progress.
