At the latest WITCHES & WITCHERS Think Tank - Summit #9, September 24th, 2020 we also explored and compiled current HR Roles. We concluded that the sheer number of HR Heads roles/responsibilities have been increasing in recent months. With this comes the emotional, physical, and physiological burden. We all see this change.

This compels us to question the status quo to make sense out of it.

Why is it happening? What is the meaning of it? What is the root cause of this? Is this effective from the organizational viewpoint? What does it whisper to us about the kind of leadership we can rely on right now?
