In this eye-opening episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Lars Schmidt — HR advocate, podcast host, and founder of Amplify — brings a fresh approach to the HR status quo. Lars discusses some of the topics found in his book, including challenging “legacy HR” practices and proposing a shifting of perspective when it comes to our people, our teams, and business as a whole.


  • HR grows and changes with the times. To become better and more effective, we must learn from those who are getting it right.
  • HR Open Source is an invaluable growing resource that will help HR teams boost efficiency.
  • We can’t afford to let the concept of “culture fit” keep us from hiring candidates that will challenge and grow us.
  • We need to rethink the once-a-year performance evaluation. In an ever-changing business environment, employees need frequent, ongoing support and feedback.
