Rix & Kay, a leading UK regional law firm, with offices in Sussex and Kent has reported a huge boost in employee engagement, since introducing ‘Idea Drop’ idea management software.
The innovative software utilises ideas from employees to improve ways of working. All employees have access to the system, and can submit ideas online, via their laptop, or using the mobile App.
Since Idea Drop was introduced last year, Rix & Kay have seen an uplift in employee engagement. Over 90 per cent of colleagues have used the platform, resulting in 3,200 interactions. To date, 200 ideas were submitted, of which 76 per cent were implemented by the organisation.
Richard Cripps, Managing Partner of Rix & Kay, said; “Prior to Idea Drop, we had no central place for feedback and ideas. With over 110 team members working across five regional offices and with a mission to “make law easy” for both our Clients and our Colleagues, we needed to find a better way of bringing forward the many innovative ideas for improving efficiencies and client service that we knew our colleagues would have.
Idea Drop has been invaluable in doing this and we now have greater visibility of the challenges they face, and can offer solutions based on their recommendations.”
The success of Idea Drop’s idea management platform is based on its user-friendly interface and all-inclusive approach. It gives employees a voice and opportunity to shape their organisation. Managers can even post specific challenges, inviting team members to contribute.
Charlie de Rusett, Founder of Idea Drop, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with positive feedback from clients using our software. Its versatility makes it suitable for any size or type of organisation serious about improving engagement, productivity and overall efficiency. It empowers everyone to be part of change and progress, regardless of their position and seniority.”
Idea Drop allows everyone across the organisation to publish their ideas internally, comment and collaborate on them. With a similar interface to many social media tools, its’ intuitive approach makes it easy to use. In a bid to provide greater transparency, management must provide notes on why an idea was implemented, actioned or parked.
At a time when remote working is growing and organisations are more diluted than ever, it’s important to create a meaningful company culture. Research* has found that employees who rate their culture poorly are 24 per cent more likely to leave.
