In March 2010, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) launched the Employee Innovation Challenge (EIC). Powered by the IdeaScale platform, this online campaign encouraged VA employees to share their ideas on how the department could be more efficient in performing its mandate.
Learn how the VA quickly and effectively collected feedback:
- Over 45,000 employees participated
- 6,552 ideas were submitted and voted on by VA staff
- The top 75 ideas were reviewed by a panel of judges for implementation
- Increased employee satisfaction
“Ideascale has been tremendously useful in helping us evaluate what we do next and where we put our resources while also giving us insight into potential new initiatives.” Peter Levin, CTO, Department of Veteran Affairs
