Innovation in the Workplace 02 of 03: Cultivate Innovation
“Innovation requires continual evolution,” said Scott Jewett, CEO and founder of research and development solutions provider Element-Y. “An innovative company can have an advantage in the marketplace, but it must also balance the investment and cost with the potential outcome. The problem is that most companies focus on building an innovative infrastructure rather than on teaching their team a structured way of thinking that delivers great results.”
An innovative workplace requires a leader who can provide the right combination of people, processes and focus. In the weeks leading up to the TEDxCharlotte event, sponsor AccruePartners will be offering insights through a 3 Part Series on finding and harnessing innovation for a productive workforce.
Part 02 – Cultivate Innovation
The startup scene today is an overcrowded space where companies are constantly vying for talent. But hiring talented people is only the first step in cultivating an innovative and creative environment. Building a workplace where there is a constant exchange of ideas involves finding the right formula for your company and culture. This effort can include investments in technology, allowing employees to express themselves as well as having a dynamic culture that encourages and fosters innovation. Making an employee “part” of something is typically a great start.
