Yesterday, we wrote about how innovative products come about through small questions asked in regular intervals. The 20% Project, for example—implemented by companies like Google and 3M—encourages employees to spend some of their paid working time (20%, to be specific) working on personal projects. This initiative engages employees by asking them to share what they’re passionate about while keeping it within the framework of the company’s interests.

We think this is one good example of enabling a culture of innovation at your organization, but there are, of course, many more. From open innovation initiatives to dexterous employee responsibilities, there are lots of avenues you can drive your organization down to introduce new, groundbreaking ideas, products, and services.

Now we want to hear from you! Below we included some questions regarding employee engagement and innovation programs.

What type of innovation initiatives do your employees respond well to?

What kind of programs have they mentioned they would like to interact with?

Which departments do you believe could benefit from more collaboration and communication?
