⚒⚒ | ＄＄ | ⏲⏲⏲ | When time is limited, employees tend to fall back into old habits when looking for knowledge, which constrains new and creative ideas. This is where artificial intelligence can support an optimal flow of information in the form of a “company brain”. This digital solution improves interdisciplinary networking and activates untapped innovation potential.
⚒ | ＄ | ⏲ | Openings should be advertised internally and externally to attract the best individuals and ensure that the workforce is as diverse as possible. Disseminating inclusive job profiles across multiple recruiting channels targets different diversity groups and attracts the largest possible pool of applicants.
⚒ | ＄ | ⏲ | The ideas board serves as an open forum for recording spontaneous ideas, making suggestions for change, and initiating constructive dialogue. Employees who tend to hold back in meetings due to time constraints or uncertainty have an additional opportunity to provide input and express their opinions freely. As a result, this variety will eventually lead to entirely new innovation plans and programs.
⚒⚒ | ＄＄ | ⏲⏲ | Employees across divisions and hierarchical levels will benefit from a digital solution for formal and informal communications. This tool will encourage the sharing and creating of innovative ideas and ensure everyone’s involvement in the development process. Interest groups with representatives from all over the company come together in a simple and inclusive way to share ideas and plan collaborative activities.
⚒⚒ | ＄ | ⏲⏲ | Job rotation is particularly effective during the training and familiarization phase. Depending on the requirements and complexity of the tasks, an employee or a prospective manager changes departments or teams at fixed intervals (e.g., weekly, monthly, or quarterly) and gets to know the various processes and procedures within the organization.
⚒ | ＄ | ⏲⏲ | Peer-mentoring groups offer employees at the same level a valuable opportunity for mutual exchange and support. The regular meetings help members of different diversity groups to develop their potential and use it for innovation. Outside-the-box thinking is promoted, and expertise is constantly communicated and applied.
⚒⚒ | ＄ | ⏲⏲⏲ | An in-house “project marketplace” combines the flexibility and autonomy of job-gigging platforms with the advantages of permanent employment relationships. The internal competition for the most exciting projects motivates employees to develop themselves, increasing their work engagement and satisfaction continuously.
