Idea Management Software improves employee engagement

Extensive research shows that when employees are encouraged to be innovative it increases their engagement and vice versa. This is why fortune 500 companies are seeing idea management software today as a critical business tool.

A study by Krueger & Killham found that 59% of engaged employees say that their job “brings out their most creative ideas,” compared to just 3% of employees who were disengaged.

With our idea management software you can tap into that creativity and generate ideas for business challenges. Engaging employees in this way makes them feel part of the company in moving the business forward and encourages brand loyalty.

Improve Productivity

One engaged employee can contribute more to the productivity of a company than ten disengaged employees.

Retain Talent

Employees that feel they have a vested interest in a company are more likely to stay than be seduced by competitors.

Their role is to use their knowledge and experience to evaluate the viability of an idea against predefined business criteria.
