IdeaShare now features a new-and-improved campaign called “Connections,” intended to uncover and connect people around shared interests, both work- and non-work-related. Ideas so far include film discussion groups, language learning efforts and opportunities for employees to earn their GEDs.

The team working on IdeaShare thanked the people who participated in the earlier version of Connections and helped show how to make it more useful, and said such improvements were an example of what learning organizations do together.

Other ideas generating discussion so far:

  • Changes to benefits including PTO, maternity/paternity leave and incentives for health screenings
  • Food trucks on campus
  • Wifi on the shuttles
  • Putting all conference rooms online for reservations
  • Having wheelchairs at the valet stations
