Marco Nink to do so: it’s not about that employees bring breakthrough innovations every day. The supposedly small ideas of employees, as well as about the optimisation are important for businesses by Workflows and processes.” The study proves: emotional bound employees brought a 40.5 percent more suggestions for improvements in the last six months than their free counterparts.

The leaders are the most important starting point.
