2022 Stronger - P107 - Harnessing the Power of 40,000: Becoming an Idea-Driven Organization - On Demand
Harness the power of ideas from your entire workforce to drive improvement, innovation and engagement. SSM Health developed a systematic approach to collect and implement ideas from its approximately 40,000 employees, resulting in solutions that are quicker to implement, less expensive and more attainable. When done correctly, soliciting employee ideas creates a culture of autonomy and shared ownership in which every team member offers improvements and witnesses the progress toward implementation. Through this systematic approach, we have solved multiple problems daily and achieved our goals across the organization more effectively and efficiently.
