IdeaSpies Enterprise

Are you a leader who wants to spark innovation and continually improve staff engagement and retention?

If so IdeaSpies Enterprise is for you.

It’s an idea capture tool that offers a simple, fun way to encourage and rate ideas from team members to improve the way they work. It’s easy to use because it’s been tested and refined via the public IdeaSpies platform.

People at all levels of an organisation are encouraged to register using their organization email address, then they can see their colleagues’ ideas to rate and comment on them as well as add their own ideas. They can use their own names or anonymous Idea Spy  names. Only people with an organisation’s email address can see the ideas.

Pre-arranged judges select the best ideas based on the support (i.e. ratings) shown for them. Winners are rewarded on a timely basis and selected ideas are implemented.

Why should you subscribe to IdeaSpies Enterprise?

Generates useful ideas

Research has shown that long-term organisational success depends on developing, testing and introducing new ideas.

The easiest way to generate ideas that improve your business is from your team members. They understand your business and want it to succeed.

Increases staff engagement and retention

An innovative culture led from the top also has higher staff engagement and retention. Insync research has shown that people leave their jobs primarily because of the job responsibilities, with 51% rating job enrichment as most important.

Your people will feel more empowered when they know that there is a transparent and timely reward system, they will receive credit for ideas they suggest and their ideas will be seriously considered for testing or implementation.

While there are many enterprise social networks that can add to job enrichment, IdeaSpies is different- it facilitates:

1. a focus on idea generation
2. ideas to be suggested anonymously if preferred
3. ratings of and comments about ideas by colleagues which influences judging
4. stimulation of ideas due to being directly linked to the public IdeaSpies ideas platform
5. participation because the platform is responsive on all devices
6. timely rewards that encourage participation
7. use across an organisation due to its simple and fun functionality, without a need for training.

Easy to learn and simple to use

The IdeaSpies Enterprise platform’s simplicity means it’s easy for you, as a leader with many demands on your time, to participate with team members. It’s been found that the key success factor for enterprise social networks is participation by organisation leadership.

Be part of a Community of Innovation Leaders

We plan to connect leaders on the left of the above chart who subscribe to the program. That’s so you can compare results and learn more about practical ways to create an innovative culture which improves staff engagement and retention.

For anyone thinking that innovation is a fad, note that a global standard  is expected to be launched in 2018 to provide the world’s first common standard for innovation processes.

Case Study on the use of IdeaSpies Enterprise

KPMG GWS (Greater Western Sydney) completed a successful trial of IdeaSpies Enterprise in December 2017.

The leader of the Division said:

“IdeaSpies Enterprise was very well received. It’s thought provoking and easy to use, with no training needed. In the early stages of the trial we made some suggestions which were immediately taken up to improve the platform and engagement. Staff saw the program as an opportunity to suggest ideas that could improve the way they work and we believe that, as well as useful ideas, we gained a benefit in improving staff engagement.

“We’re also very pleased that the winning ideas are attractive to clients and expected to generate extra revenue. We plan to repeat the program in the New Year when new staff join.

“If you’re interested in using IdeaSpies Enterprise as an idea capture tool you’re very welcome to contact me for more information.”
