Innovative Human Resources

The world in which businesses operate is always changing. Whether it is innovation through; delivery of training, people management activities, remuneration structures, employment arrangements or rostering of staff. Some examples include:

  • Introducing the use of Individual Flexibility Agreements to allow flexible employment arrangements is one way businesses can be more innovative to maximise the employment arrangement and meet operational needs, as well as balance employee needs.
  • Developing creative training programs can have many benefits for an organisation, particularly where your workforce is geographically disbursed. Innovative training delivery and HR activities can ensure the business vision, teamwork, and culture is still strong without the need to always bring people together physically.
  • Designing an innovative remuneration and reward structure that ensures compliance with Fairwork but is also rewarding performance and behaviour that contributes to achieving your organisational goals is another way to utilise innovative HR practices to drive productivity.

Innovation is what can set your business apart, it can ensure you are attractive to your employees and prospective employees, keeping your intellectual property and people investment with you long-term, and ultimately helping you achieve your business goals.
