Employee-Driven Innovation (EDI)


Be an Enterprise Advocate for Workplace Transformation


What is EDI?

An initiative under the Centre for Workplace Learning and Performance (CWLP), Employee-Driven Innovation (EDI) promotes innovation through everyday employee-led improvisations of work processes, services and products. With your employees’ close proximity to the ground and customers, they are better able to initiate ideas for incremental or radical changes.

These involve aspects of change management, idea generation and idea implementation, which support an environment in which innovation does not need to follow traditional hierarchical structures.

Why Should You Consider EDI Projects?


EDI recognises that your employees’ expertise, experiences, ideas and creativity can make them gamechangers at the workplace. Are you interested in empowering your employees to make improvements to your organisation? If so, EDI can help your organisation achieve the following:

Improved work processes

Because of their close proximity to the ground, market and customers, your employees would have ideas on how to improve work processes, services and products.

Stay competitive

In a country such as Singapore, where human capital is its most valuable asset, EDI may be the most viable way forward to stay competitive.

Cost efficiency

EDI is an inexpensive and effective method of improving work processes, services and products.
