Actions and Detail Panel
Innovation: HR as enabler or inhibitor?
Thu 11 May 2017, 09:30 – 12:45 BST
This event will look at whether organisations use HR policies and practices (eg learning and development, reward, performance management, employee engagement) to promote organisational innovation and thereby enhance organisational performance, or whether workplace innovation comes from other sources. We will then examine which HR policies and people management practices enable innovation and which inhibit innovation.
Topics we will cover include:
- What helps workforce innovation?
- What are the barriers to workforce innovation?
- What role can HR play in stimulating workforce innovation?
The programme for this event will be made available soon.
Lunch will be provided.
Who should attend?
Heads of HR, Business Partners and those working in relevant centres of expertise.
