Larry English wrote a guest piece for Recruiter.com about how remote innovation not only works but excels.
Centric Consulting was recently named one of the top 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators by Fast Company. But how does a fully remote company provide innovators the space they need, to well, innovate? Larry English, co-founder and President of Centric, shares six ways we cultivate a culture of innovation that can also help your business as well.
“Whether in-person or remote, innovation-focused sessions that gather and test the latest thinking, ideas, and problems are key. Employees usually leave these sessions energized, excited to be part of something new, and having made new connections,” said Larry in the Recruiter.com post.
He includes the importance of having the right tools and the right teams to succeed. Larry also hits on the importance of being willing to fail.
“To innovate, you have to embrace failure and help your teams do the same. Give them the tools and the space to test new ideas or processes. Celebrate their efforts regardless of the outcomes. Organize sessions — remote or in-person — where people share stories about their failures. We have, and it has served us well.”
