Abstract

Slowly but surely things are beginning to feel different.

Far from remaining the concern of a few far-sighted companies and enthusiasts in Northern Europe, workplace innovation has started to become part of the mainstream conversation.

As we show below, the Economist Intelligence Unit recently published a report demonstrating that encouraging ideas from everyone and a high tolerance of failure are widely regarded in multinational companies as essential to keep businesses competitive (and there are some great practical examples of this in EUWIN’s Film Bank). Evidence that increasing numbers of companies are taking employee-driven innovation seriously can also be found in the new Create Tomorrow initiative described in this Bulletin.

Developments in Scotland and The Basque Country show that more and more policymakers are exploring measures to stimulate, resource and sustain workplace innovation. Patricia Findlay’s article on the Innovating Works … project describes the emergence of an exciting new coalition involving government, social partners, enterprises and researchers in Scotland. Likewise this week’s conference in San Sebastian/Donostia organised in partnership with EUWIN marks a further step in the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa’s workplace innovation programme.

All this reinforces the findings from the 3rd European Company Survey. Companies which involve employees in day-to-day decision-making and in participative working practices perform better in terms of business outcomes and workforce health. These findings are discussed in the interview with Stavroula Demetriades and in the article by Frank Pot.

EUWIN can surely take some of the credit for changing the tide. The European Commission’s far-sighted move in establishing the Network has led to the engagement of thousands of people across Europe in conferences, workshops, online dialogue, sharing good practice and many other initiatives.

Thank you for being part of it. We have created a movement. And it is helping to change the way people think about workplaces.
