Unleash Your Innovators

Webinar

The business world is increasingly volatile. Only a fraction of the Fortune 500 companies from 50 years ago still retain the Fortune 500 designation today. And the future promises continued upheaval. Everything we know is subject to the new rules of the marketplace and the potential impact of disruptors.

What keeps organizations thriving is the ability to pivot, to be creative, and to imaginatively problem solve. In short, survival depends on the workforce’s ability to innovate.

Based on a Bright Horizons survey of 1,500 full-time working adults across U.S. geography and industries, organizations characterized as innovative have cultures that effectively create trust, free thinking, and ability for employees to bring their full cognitive capacity to their daily tasks. These elements create the conditions that allow creative ideas big and small to take shape.

In this webinar, learn more about how businesses are creating cultures of innovation and the critical role human resources plays in propelling these organizations forward.

Attendees will learn:

  1. Why human resources and people practices are at the epicenter of driving innovative culture
  2. Identify the specific cultural characteristics of innovative organizations
  3. How innovative companies approach minimizing factors such as stress in employees work and personal life to empower creativity
  4. Examples of how top organizations are currently solving the challenges of enabling innovation in their workforce
