We're Only Human 7 - Eight Ways HR Can Drive Enterprise Innovation

Host : Ben Eubanks

Innovation is often discussed as an activity available only to a select few people or companies, but it is an incredibly powerful tool for companies, especially when we seek ways to use our HR influence to drive a culture of innovation. 

In a research report published by the International Board of Innovation Science, Dennis Stauffer explored what separates wildly successful companies from the rest. "When those founders who scored highest on the Innovativeness Index were compared to those who scored lowest, the ventures of the high scorers averaged 34 times as much profit, 70 times as much revenue and employed 10 times as many people. They were also dramatically more likely to be one of the exceptionally high performers that investors call a home run."

In this episode, Ben Eubanks discusses 8 key ways that HR leaders can create, reinforce, and drive innovative behaviors in the business. In addition, he covers two common ways that companies kill motivation and innovation with their human resources practices.
