Can a highly regulated organisation such as a regional police force promote and develop employee driven innovation?

The important thing is that you have an environment where people are doing their job at any level have a process they can flash about ideas without fear of criticism, without immediately knocking them on the head and just doing the what ifs.  When people find they can do that, if you start looking at the links to employee engagement you often find it raises job satisfaction, peoples motivation, even wellness in the workplace so there’s a whole raft of links that I think, if we get this right, it’s just a better environment to work in.”
