Series: When HR Kills Innovation Efforts

HR is a core piece of the innovation equation and can make or break your innovation efforts. Econic helps corporations map and execute innovation. After working with many corporations in many different industries, Josh Berry, Co-Founder of Econic has discovered some barriers to successful innovation that have their roots in HR.

In Part 2 of this series, Rayanne Thorn invites Josh Berry to talk about how HR can hinder innovation by the Wrong Incentives – are the right incentives and compensation in place?

Where HR finds itself in innovative companies is very different than a standing organization – perhaps structuring incentives differently than expected will have the impact and focus to benefit growth, allowing HR to benefit, as opposed to hinder.
