Increase Employee Engagement
Extensive research shows that when employees are encouraged to be innovative it increases their engagement and vice versa.
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 Wide Ideas you can tap into that creativity and generate ideas to 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 web interface, you can also innovate through the world’s most used collaboration hub with our enterprise SaaS application.
Wide Ideas has met all security and data handling requirements to be one of the few trustworthy integrations with the Microsoft Teams application.
