How does your innovation programme compare to the best of the best? The ideasUK Accreditation is a way for organisations to give both internal and external prominence to their workplace innovation programme.  In essence this is an audit, with questions that have been refined over a number of years and now fully mapped to the Innovation Guideline BS ISO 56002 to provide you with a blue print for your programme and support you to add greater value to your organisation in the future.

The ideasUK 2021 Idea of the Year Competition is now Open!

This really is the year to find ways to recognise success! As we start to come out of lockdown, now is a perfect time to reflect on all of the great things that your teams achieved despite the restrictions of the previous year. The Idea of the Year competition provides a great opportunity for you to recognise employees who submitted those incredible ideas that have made a real contribution to your business success and it is FREE to enter for all member organisations!

This year to make it even easier to enter, we have removed the need for you to choose a category for submission, so all you need to do is tell us about your idea, how you developed it and the benefits that have been delivered.

ideasUK has shown time after time how innovation in the workplace can bring wide benefits to employees, customers and organisations and we continue to recognise the best ideas from our member organisations through our Idea of the Year competition so, which ideas will you enter?

The competition is already open and closes to entries on 10th September 2021. We are looking for ideas that have been implemented and delivered benefit, either tangible or intangible to the organisation over the last year and you can head over to our dedicated site (thanks to Wazoku) to learn more and upload your ideas: IdeasUK – Idea Spotlight (wazoku.com)
