At HCL, we practice ideapreneurship™ - the company’s unique culture of grass-roots, business-driven, customer-focused innovation, in which every employee has a license to ideate. Employees at all levels are empowered and encouraged to come up with innovative solutions to customer’s business challenges. These inspired employees think of new ideas and take them to fruition.
The vibrant ideapreneurial culture is powered by HCL’s strong belief in Employees First Customers Second; Trust, Transparency and Flexibility; and Value Centricity. Practice of these beliefs, lead employees to demonstrate distinct intrapreneurial behaviors – Seed, Nurture and Harvest.. These behaviors are supported by corporate led as well as employee led platforms that provide a systematic seeding and nurturing of new ideas amply supported by our customers resulting in strong business outcomes both for HCL as well as for our customers.
Ideas thus become the unit of value centricity. Key programs and innovation platforms such as MAD JAM, Value Portal, LeadGen facilitate the value generation process at HCL. The Value Portal encourages co-creation of value and has generated over 28,000 ideas on live client projects; MAD JAM celebrates outstanding ideas from within HCL that have been implemented for clients; and LeadGen is the opportunity spotting program for HCL employees to help a speedier ‘go to market’ strategy for our customers.
We encourage you to take a look at a crisp summary of all this in our corporate presentation below.
