Did you know?

“We are really pleased with how the system works, it’s very easy for all our colleagues to use. Employees can access this from their home or via our intranet making it accessible all day long! We hold a national conference once a year and have now incorporated a ‘call the slots: best idea’ award into the evening awards ceremony, which shows just how much this scheme means to both the company and our employees.”
HR teams can make a significant impact on business performance
HR professionals can help generate business improvement ideas from employees, without committing to another large administrative burden. Feedback is an essential tool in the fight to improve employee engagement, yet many companies fail to offer a well structured means to submit ideas and gain recognition when good ideas are taken up.
Research shows that most employees would come up with creative suggestions to help improve the organisation they work for if they were recognised and rewarded for their idea – whether it was successfully implemented or not.
How do our employee ideas schemes work?
Our online employee ideas portal can be used to encourage idea generation and recognise the impact every individual can make to your business. The portal enables staff to input their ideas against your core company values and receive recognition for their contribution in the form of e-cards or manager presentation materials.
They can access it whenever and wherever they get a brilliant idea!
Scheme administrators can evaluate all ideas on a monthly basis and reward staff in a variety of ways for suggestions – where they are taken up or not. Rewards can include points that can be redeemed against a suite of merchandise, gift cards, vouchers, prepaid cards, experiences days, cinema tickets or travel..
Our portal ensures that employees know the status of their ideas with regular communications being sent at every update. It it based on tried and tested employee recognition techniques and can therefore easily be expanded to incorporate additional recognition critera, such as living company values, long service awards or peer to peer recognition.
