Diverse ideas from diverse employees

How many ideas does a company need to successfully manage its future? At EVN, the answer is clear: “as many as possible!“ The wide-ranging diversity of backgrounds, nationalities and cultures that make up the EVN workforce represent not only a wealth of different viewpoints, but also a wealth of ideas. This potential can now be used more effectively with EVN’s Intranet idea management, which was rolled out in Macedonia in the reporting period and therefore now also covers the two main business locations in South Eastern Europe. Successfully implemented ideas are rewarded with bonuses. A total of 140 ideas were submitted by more than 8% of the employees in 2013/14 – ranging from technological innovations in the electricity network to social ideas for the “EVN for Lower Austria” campaign to smaller and larger opportunities for cost savings. A special focus in South Eastern Europe was on ideas to further improve service quality.
