Why not let your employees invest some of their working hours into a startup?
Google was the first company to implement the 20 % rule, where employees were allowed to spend time on a passion project of their own. Their employees started coming up with and developing new and innovative ideas such as Gmail, Google Maps and other products that are familiar to us all today.
If you are looking to challenge your organization’s talent, high-performing employees and develop them even further, why not let them invest a percentage of their working hours into a startup to be inspired by new technologies, new business models and new ways of working?
Helping others succeed is inspiring and engaging beyond anything else, and sometimes getting out of our accustomed surroundings is just the thing we need to rethink, innovate or transform our own business.
