Question: How can HR help drive innovation within organizations?


Answer: While HR isn’t generally responsible for product development or business process improvement, it can help to create a culture of innovation throughout the organization. It can also help by creating innovative HR programs, implementing policies and creating organizational structures that help foster innovation and creativity, and facilitating workshops that encourage employees to come forward with new ideas.
