As part of the European Commission’s Enterprise & Industry Mission for Growth strategy, a Europe-wide learning network for workplace innovation has been launched with the specific objective of improving the performance of organisations and the quality of jobs on a truly sustainable basis.

Research has long demonstrated a clear relationship between the practices associated with workplace innovation and high performance, with strong implications for the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP). There is an equally strong relationship between enhanced quality of working life (and especially intrinsic job quality and well-being at work) and the achievement of key EU policy objectives such as the development and utilisation of appropriate skills, improved workforce health, active ageing at work and labour market inclusion.

Workplace Innovation embraces diverse EU policy fields including Social Innovation Europe, Flagship Initiative Innovation Union, Flagship Initiative New Skills and Jobs, Flagship Initiative on Industrial Policy, and Occupational Safety and Health.

About Workplace Innovation

Workplace innovation is grounded in continuing reflection, learning and improvements in the way in which organisations manage their employees, organise work and deploy technologies.

Workplace innovation:

·         improves performance and working lives through positive organisational change involving inclusive dialogue and by releasing the creativity of employees;

·          coalesces the strategic knowledge of the leadership  with the hands-on, practical but often unrecognised knowledge of frontline employees.

Workplace innovation seeks to engage all stakeholders in the process of change, leading to “win-win” outcomes in which a creative convergence (rather than a trade-off) is forged between enhanced organisational performance and enhanced quality of working life.
