HR and Innovation

This event is now complete
Innovation is a vital capability for all organisations operating in today’s ever changing business environment.
But innovation represents a big challenge for HR. Although having the right processes and technologies is important, innovation is mainly about having the right attitudes and behaviours, supported by the right culture. It’s therefore unfortunate that HR is often seen as an inhibitor rather than enabler of innovation. This session will cover the main things HR professionals need to know to support, and even lead, the innovation agenda within their organisations.
In addition, HR itself is increasingly being seen as one of the last untapped opportunities for transformational innovation. There are organisations around that manage their people in significantly different ways. Most organisations however are focused on implementing best practices – even when we know these practices aren’t that ‘best’. The session will therefore also look at how HR can develop more innovative approaches to its own processes and support.
Through leveraging these opportunities, HR can substantially increase its credibility and contribution, and the impact it has on the organisations it works within.
- Director, VP or manager of HR, talent management, recruiting, learning, organisation development etc
- HR business partner or HR practitioner, wanting to contribute more broadly to the innovation agenda
- Business leader, with responsibility for talent management
