Year of Innovation

University Human Resources has designated 2017 the Year of HR Innovation. We’ve launched a community-driven initiative to generate ideas that solve problems, reduce costs, and enhance efficiency.

Every two weeks, HR professionals across campus are invited to address a new question drawn from Working@Iowa findings, Talent@Iowa implementation plans, UI strategic plan goals, and other sources.

Questions seek the HR community’s best ideas—local practices with potential to go bigger, new efforts to try and test, opportunities to team up, and more.

This site summarizes these ideas. Check back regularly as we share new questions, present top responses, and continue the conversation.

Our goal: Build collaboration and creativity among HR professionals, recognizing our collective commitment to supporting the university’s most valuable resource—its people.
