Idea Management Software increases 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.
One engaged employee can contribute more to the productivity of a company than ten disengaged employees.
Employees that feel they have a vested interest in a company are more likely to stay than be seduced by competitors.
Integration with Microsoft Teams
As well as the Wide Ideas idea management software, you can also engage and innovate through the world’s most-used collaboration hub, Microsoft Teams, with our integrated enterprise ideas hub.
Wide Ideas has met all security and data handling requirements to be one of the few trustworthy integrations with the Microsoft Teams application.
Embedding ideation into your existing company’s digital workplace significantly increases employee engagement and adoption.
