HR MADE SIMPLE

Localism and the fight to stay familiar 

My morning routine consists of waking up, getting ready, watching some news, etc. Probably very similar to your morning routine.

One guilty pleasure I have – if I have time between showers and straight irons – is watching surfing videos. I love watching the artistry of surfers and admire their fearless attack on relentless waves.

I follow a magazine called Stab Magazine which gives me lots of cool info for my viewing and reading pleasure. Here’s a cool article recently published about the staunch localism felt on the island of Kauai in the US state of Hawaii.

As I read the article it got me thinking about how fierce protection of what is “yours” whether it be a way of life, culture, resources, or friends/family is a driver for many people. It’s why companies that go through significant changes often struggle to convert the way of thinking of team members who’ve been with the company a long time. There’s loyalty in the sense of comfort and respect for what’s known; what’s familiar.

I liked reading about the ways of Kauai and I hope it stays local for all the reasons mentioned in the article.

But I’d sure like to visit if they’ll have a mainlander like me for a week or two!
