Government: Improve Community Engagement
Just one good idea from your community can change everything! A tiny investment of time and money could massively improve outcomes. Unleash your biggest untapped resource.
Local residents want a say in the decisions that impact their local communities.
Create an ‘Idea Management’ project on ‘I Imagine. Allow your community members to participate in the process of generating new ideas about how to solve local issues, improving existing ideas, commenting on ideas and voting on ideas.
Instead of trying to solve every local issue yourself, get ideas about how to solve local issues from your local residents. This dramatically increases the likelihood that the solutions you implement will be solutions they like.
Allow local residents (that want to be pro active) participate in the process of generating new ideas, improving existing ideas, commenting on ideas and voting on ideas.
Reduce the likelihood of implementing ideas that local residents don’t like
In order to serve your community you also need to optimize your internal management and workplace. There are an infinite number of ways to improve workplace efficiency and the easiest way to get access to the best ideas is to tap into your employees.
Retain and attract the best employees. It’s obvious that the best employees are pro active. They want to be involved and to be valued – otherwise they will move on. This is also the best way to the most value for your organization out of the best employees.
