About People Managing People


An HR & Leadership publication to help you build happy, healthy & productive workplaces.

Often, content related to people, culture and leadership focuses on “what’s wrong” and “why” something needs to happen—the "how to fix it" is missing. We're filling this gap by providing content that is not only insightful but actionable.

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.

What people are saying about us

I really loved both the energy and sense of curiosity that you brought to [our podcast episode]. True curiosity is rare, so that's a real credit to you.

We're so lucky to have Tim come as a keynote speaker at our university event on resilience. He was engaging, authentic, and found a way to really connect with the class through his personal stories. We learned a lot from Tim and would highly recommend reaching out to him if you need a guest speaker.
