In the world of fashion, the September issue of magazines is the most important of the year. That’s because autumn/winter trends are showcased and fashion weeks take place in New York, London, Paris, and Milan. Now, far be it for me to compare the world of People & Culture to high fashion, but there is something of a ‘September issue’ effect when it comes to organisational focus at this time of year. Here’s my theory as to why:
I reckon that in September, after most people have spent at least a week or two on holiday somewhere – hopefully in the sun (because let’s face it July and August was absolutely pants weather-wise in the UK) they come back with a renewed focus and that means they finally get round to sorting out stuff they’ve been meaning to do all year.
