HR’s most innovative teams revealed

by HCA06 Apr 2017
Among the teams recognised in HRD's Innovative HR Teams report for pushing the innovation envelope are Australia Post, Cancer Council NSW, Deloitte, Medibank and Mantra Group.

Earlier this year, HRD magazine opened entries for its second annual Innovative HR Teams report to once again recognise the most forward-thinking teams in the industry.

At Deloitte, it’s all about ‘making an impact that matters’, a philosophy that the people and performance team has taken to heart and worked to accomplish in their environment and through the professional services offered by the company.

As a source of a wealth of information and knowledge, Deloitte has an ‘Open Talent Network’, a fully integrated end-to-end technology solution designed to address traditional labour and business model disruption.

The platform provides consistent and effective access to varied talent pools, as well as access to practitioners without additional fixed costs, and gives practitioners a venue to engage with their work and enhance their experience.

Meanwhile, old habits are extremely difficult to break, which is acknowledged in Medibank’s new health & wellbeing (H&W) program, ‘Ritualize’.

After seeing requests for ‘more focus on wellbeing’ in the employee survey, the team introduced the program in October 2016, following its successful ‘I am better’ marketing campaign.

Ritualize is an online holistic H&W program designed to help people develop positive lifelong habits.

Based on the ‘80/20’ principle (whereby 80% of the time you focus on eating clean, good-for-you foods and 20% of the time you have freedom to indulge as you please), the program sets goals that are broken down into small, achievable steps – known as rituals. It then provides tools, resources and activities to improve wellbeing.

The report is now available in the latest issue of HRD magazine and showcases 30 teams showing dedication to driving the industry forward.

The Innovative HR Teams report is available in issue 15.03 of HRD magazine, on desks now. The results can also be viewed online.
