December: Distinctiveness

For the last question from 2017’s Year of Innovation initiative, we invited HR community input on questions of how we talk about the University of Iowa as a place to work.

December 14 question — Responses

Question: What comes to mind when you think of the University of Iowa? What do you think makes the university distinctive as a place to work?

Call to action

Consider how you can build on colleagues’ ideas:

  • Choose an idea to develop: Select a single, specific suggestion—big or small—that has potential for your unit and put it to work.
  • Keep the conversation going: Ask unit colleagues and leaders what they think of the topic at hand.
  • Think bigger: Don’t see any ideas that resonate? Develop another solution that better addresses your innovation goals.
