A New Chapter for Redefining HR
As the world of work continues to evolve, it's time to broaden the focus beyond the term "HR".

Three years ago, I was working on one-year series in my Fast Company column called “21st Century HR”. This series was focused on spotlighting progressive HR and people practices, leaders, and approaches.
I wanted to use the podcast to go deeper into the pieces I was writing and provide another layer of context through stories and conversations.
When I published my Redefining HR book in 2021, I renamed the podcast so it would align with the book.
The world of work has been in a constant state of change over the past several years. These macro shifts go deeper than what we call ourselves. They speak to the changes in work itself - where, when, and how.
I want to continue to examine that evolution through my podcast, newsletters, live events, and other media channels.
I also want to expand the guests on the podcasts to include more CEOs and business leaders who are influencing this new world of work. Guest who would be mischaracterized by “HR”.
As the scope of the coverage expands, I wanted to evolve the name of the podcast and newsletter to better reflect the widening of the coverage I’ll be focusing on in 2023 and beyond.
Introducing “Redefining Work”
Redefining HR is now Redefining Work.
This will reflect the podcast, the weekly news roundup (formerly the Amplify Digest), and new media initiatives I’ll launch in the New Year.
Redefining Work will be hosted on Substack, a platform designed for creators with various features that will allow more interaction with subscribers through chat, comments, and more.
Here are some additional changes you’ll see in January.
The new Redefining Work podcast will return in January and move to a bi-monthly publishing schedule every other Monday.
The Amplify Digest will now be the Redefining Work Newsletter and will be published each Wednesday.
Hosting on Substack will create more opportunities for subscriber interactions through chats, post comments, and more. You’ll also have direct chat channels to influence the content, stories, and podcast guests.
Redefining Work will continue to spotlight people and business leaders who are transforming the world of work.
I’m thrilled about this next chapter of the podcast and media platform and look forward to exploring more stories on advancing the world of work in the new year.
I also want to take a moment to thank all the listeners, subscribers, podcast guests, and community who have supported my work over the years.
I feel incredibly grateful and fortunate to have such an amazing community that continues to push for a better world of work.
Thank you! 🙏🏼
