Innovation is the direct result of a healthy internal ecosystem, creating an innovative culture where work has meaning, brands have genuine value and new thinking leads to useful ideas being implemented.According to a Gallup Report, only 15% of adults worldwide, who work full time for an employer and are engaged at work, are highly involved in and enthusiastic about their work and workplace. This low % implies significant wasted potential.

Generate useful, effective and actionable ideas
The best way to generate useful ideas that improve your business is from your team members. They understand your business and want it to succeed.
However, one of the biggest challenges in leading teams is encouraging innovative thought. Many employees feel inhibited when the process forces creativity and ideas through structured, time-pressured sessions.
Team Members often get their best ideas when they have Eureka moments outside of meetings, but they may forget about them before they have a chance to bring them up in a future meeting or ideation session
Increase staff engagement and retention
Your people will feel more enriched and empowered when there is an easy, transparent and effective mechanism to share their ideas, with a timely recognition system, ensuring they will receive credit for ideas they suggest and that their ideas will be seriously considered for testing or implementation. This will also help to encourage teams to collaborate across silos which typically limit ideas outside their realm.
