The semi-finalists have been announced for i4cp's 2016 Next Practice Award. This award celebrates and highlights leading-edge people practices and the organizations that are implementing them to positively impact the bottom-line. The finalists and winner will be announced at the i4cp 2016 Conference: Next Practices Now, March 29 – April 1, 2016, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The discovery of next practices--human capital tactics and/or strategies that few companies are employing but that are highly correlated with market performance--is one of the Institute for Corporate Productivity’s (i4cp) primary focuses. To that end, i4cp turned to its network of member organizations to uncover world class examples of next practices in action. The Next Practice Award showcases the design, implementation, and measurement of innovative people practices that effectively address current business challenges.

Organizations ranging from established Fortune 500 firms to fast-growing brands are among the 10 semi-finalists:

  • Abbott
  • Amtrak
  • Amway
  • Campbell Soup Company
  • Flex
  • HSBC
  • LinkedIn
  • McDonald's
  • Sears Holding Company
  • TIAA

Their submissions, which vary from achievements in performance enablement to diversity & inclusion, and leadership development, will be featured on the i4cp website over the next two months, starting the week of March 7, 2016. The winner will be announced at the i4cp 2016 Conference: Next Practices Now, a vendor-free event for senior HR, learning, and talent leaders devoted to both looking ahead to what the future brings and focusing on the people practices that drive market performance now.
