Modern employee suggestion programs

Often the problem with traditional suggestion boxes is the burdensome handling processes that lack transparency. This is harmful for both the organizers of the suggestion program and the participants. At the heart of modern employee suggestion programs is to make the process open, simple and collaborative. The recording of a suggestion must be effortless, as well as transparent processing. This can be achieved by using digital suggestion box tools. The right tools will simplify and automate tasks, give staff clear visibility of the status of their ideas and the ability to track their progress.
