The Idea generator explained



Challenges & ideas
To give direction to the various themes that are central to the organisation, we use multiple challenges. You can make these challenges as extensive or straightforward as you like. For example, there might be a challenge centred on sustainability or one in which colleagues are asked to think about a new way of working. The various challenges are issues on which employees are asked to think along. Within a challenge, employees can then put forward ideas.

Below you will find a screenshot in which we explain the idea generator.

The overview page consists of the following parts:

1. New challenges:

This is the first step to creating a new challenge.
