In today’s video blog, CAI’s Vice President of Membership, Doug Blizzard, explains how solutions and processes from your peers can help you improve your organization.
Doug acknowledges that companies are currently doing more with less. Because employers and HR professionals are working with limited resources, Doug offers them a suggestion: learn from the best practices of other companies. Maybe you’re looking to refresh company culture, update a specific policy or introduce a new method of getting work done. Learning from your peers is a great way to gain new ideas and see the results of different workplace initiatives.
Doug advises you to seek out best practices from other employers, as well as share the best practices of your organization. He makes an important note that you should always modify a best practice or initiative from another company to fit your workplace specifically.
So where do you find best practices? For seven years CAI has recognized and honored companies that have implemented HR/people practices that have positively impacted their business results through its Ovation Awards for HR Excellence.
