About us

Often, content related to culture and leadership focuses on “what’s wrong” and “why” something needs to happen. But, the “how to fix it” is often missing. We aim to fill this gap by providing content that is not only insightful but actionable.

People Managing People, a BWZ Media Company, is an online community and independent publication for people managers and culture creators excited and focused on creating healthy and productive workplaces.

Launched in 2019, People Managing People has grown into a leading publication and community space for HR and people leaders. Backed by over 20 years of leadership experience, the team at People Managing People is focused on delivering content that creates conversations in order to build a better world of work.

Our contributors have a vast range of experience, gained from organizations that are small, large, and everything in between. We believe that by incorporating diverse perspectives from people with different backgrounds and experiences, we will be able to deliver the most impactful content possible.
