Putting Innovation to Work Within Employee Sustainability Initiatives

"Problems are just opportunities to innovate."

- Shanker Sahai, Vistaprint Corporate Solutions

Innovation isn’t merely a random event or a “bolt from the blue.” It’s a process that, carefully managed, can engage employees while bringing forth new opportunities to improve operations and create customer value. Combined with a company’s sustainability commitments and operations, employee-born innovation can be a powerful force for positive change.

Indeed, sustainability can be a key driver of innovation within an organization, reaching far beyond traditional CSR initiatives — everything from supply chain practices to office space operations to how employees view their everyday work. All can contribute to making a positive sustainability impact across an entire organization.
