Human resource executives command many tools to foster innovative workplace cultures.
However, investing in innovation may be viewed by some organizations as too risky at a time when they are scrutinizing every expenditure, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) notes in its 2009 Workplace Visions article, “Innovative Work Teams in a Challenging Business Environment.”
For organizations up to the challenge, though, the SHRM researchers point out, “it’s the kind of strategic investment that will pay dividends now in the years ahead.”
