Innovate or Evaporate: Encouraging innovation in the workplace

by 21:43 0 comments

If you want to ensure that your organisation is responsive to change and at the forefront of innovation in its field, it is pivotal to encourage your staff to innovate and think outside the box.

Here are some tips to help you foster an innovative culture at work:

Encourage productivity

“The kind of environment that we developed Google in, the reason that we were able to develop a search engine, is the web was so open. Once you get too many rules, that will stifle innovation.” — Sergey Brin

In order to encourage your staff to generate and develop new ideas, it is important to create a culture that celebrates and rewards proactive thinking. This is a process and won’t happen over night. Incentivize proactive solutions, invest in training and ensure that your staff know that you are always receptive to new ideas. Make sure bureaucracy doesn’t stifle creativity.

Invite communication

“Colleagues should take care of each other, have fun, celebrate success, learn by failure, look for reasons to praise not to criticise, communicate freely and respect each other.” — Richard Branson, Virgin Group

Establishing open communication at work is critical to creating a proactive culture at work. Ensure that your team feels safe to critique workflow processes and always ensure that you reward open dialogue.

Hire passionate people

“No organisation ever created an innovation. People innovate, not companies.” – Seth Godin

Passion fuels progress. Hiring people who are passionate about their work is a great way to make sure that your team will be more likely to work harder to improve.
