How To Spur Employee Innovation

As the business world refocuses on driving innovation, companies are entertaining new ways to generate creative ideas that will boost employee and customer engagement. By taking employees out of their normal office environment, CEOs can inspire them to perceive organizational challenges in a different light, finding fresh solutions and boosting morale.

Finding the right venue

An offsite meeting place should offer environmental features that are in dramatic contrast to the office environment. Inspiring examples may include special lighting, a natural environment, tall ceilings, art, oversize props, theatrical elements such as stages, curtains or microphones, proximity to children or animals and access to business technology.

A good facility coordinator works with the company as a partner, identifying what the specific goals and requirements are, and what type of room is needed for events, meetings, or team building.
