What is Workplace Innovation?

Workplace innovation is a new approach to the way we work, transforming the way companies attract, develop and retain talent. It is about enabling employees at all levels to use and develop skills, knowledge, experience and creativity to the widest possible extent.

Business innovation enables companies to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace, launch user-centric products, and retain talent.

How Do You Harness the Power of Innovation?

  • Embrace Innovation Culture

The key to successful innovation is that it is repeatable, embedded in the company’s culture, and adapted regularly, like any other process. Involvement from employees, partners and customers, sharing ideas between departments, diversity among employees and the development of skills strengthen collaboration and increase the quality of innovation.

  • Get Feedback from Customers

One of the ways to leverage innovation in your company is to get feedback from customers. Customer engagement is a core part of the open innovation strategy. Because in a constantly changing competitive environment, focusing on the needs of the customers and solving their problems will allow you to be one step ahead. By incorporating customer feedback tools into your innovation program, you can work with your customers every step of the way to create more successful products and services.

You can do this by using social media channels, website blogs and other digital communication networks. Remember, the most successful companies are those that listen carefully to what their consumers really want.

  • Reward Good Performing Employees

In a fiercely competitive world, regularly tracking your employees’ progress ensures you don’t miss their achievements. Recognizing, appreciating, and rewarding employee achievements also results in more satisfied and engaged employees. This increases motivation, increases employee creativity, and helps maintain the company’s culture of innovation.

  • Drive Innovation as a Team

Innovation is a critical component to the performance and growth of your business, but remains a contractual obligation or an option in many companies. Innovation is not something only managers or the IT department can do. Requires you to build inspired cross-functional teams to solve problems and create new experiences with technology.
