Luz and Edwin from Ian Martin Group on Adaptability in a Crisis

Lisa Gill interviews Luz Iglesias and Edwin Jansen,  originally published at

Luz Iglesias, Director of Recruitment, and Edwin Jansen, Head of Corporate Development, work at Ian Martin Group, a self-managed, Teal recruitment company with 400 employees across Canada and India.

They share examples and stories of the initiatives, decisions and creativity that have sprung up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic without any central coordination, and how adaptability and humanity can flow freely in a self-organised system because of the mindset shift it facilitates.

As former managers, they reflect on how liberating it is to distribute the responsibility of responding, strategising and taking care of people operations.
