Garima Gupta and Aoife O’Brien speak about how HR can implement better self-care practices. HR tend to be the ones looking after everyone else, which can lead to increased levels of burnout within the team. We discuss how HR should be the ones to put on their own oxygen mask first and Garima shares some very practical tips on how to make that happen. The advice she shares is applicable not only to HR, but to anyone working in an organisation and who could do with learning ways to deal with burnout and overwhelm.

When the whole world is silent, then even one voice becomes powerful. – Malala Yousufzai
“Your voice matters” no matter who you are and where you are. I had come to this realization as a young adult but somewhere in my career I felt the need to conform and to be politically correct and spoke my truth more diplomatically. I was told that I need to add more please and thank you. Somewhere I lost my voice in all this.
But I found my voice again and more importantly the courage, it requires to use it, a few years back, after a coaching session. I have since been speaking, within and outside my organization about Inclusion, Equity and using your voice, to share my unique perspective of working with a global workforce in constantly changing environments
I have been working as a Global HR leader for over 15 years, across industries and geographies (India, China, Australia, Sub-Saharan Africa, USA, UK and Central American countries). Over these years, I have been having robust conversations about the future of work, creating a better employee experience and investing in talent.
