Innovation was the theme at this year’s Boomer Technology Circle Summit, held in Kansas City, Missouri, this week. But in order to get innovating, you’d better get compensating.
“Charge is king,” Gary Farrar, chief innovation and technology officer for Top 100 Firm BKD said during the innovation panel discussion. “If you pull people away from billable hours to an innovation project — well, you just don’t do that. We’ve built a compensation program for that because it makes a big difference for people working on these projects.”
