In the idea generator at Plek, you create challenges. These are issues where employees are asked to think along. Then, within a challenge, you can communicate with colleagues about specific topics related to the question in question.
What do you find on the page of a challenge?
A challenge looks a lot like a group, but unlike groups, you choose Challenges in the navigation bar:
1. Move your mouse over the challenges in the navigation bar.
2. Then, search for or select the challenge you are looking for.
This takes you to the page for the challenge in question.
Below is a screenshot in which we explain the possibilities within a challenge.
