Suggestion box tips — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If your company’s leaders welcome and reward smart input from employees, take them up on it. But don’t just scribble your great idea and drop it in a “suggestion box.” Instead, talk up your proposal first. Collect initial feedback from your bosses. When you’re ready to submit the idea, send a copy to any higher-ups who helped you craft it. That way, they’ll see that you treated their input seriously (and they may champion your cause and see that your suggestion is implemented).
