Indiana Business Council Tackles Innovation
INDIANAPOLIS — Two thirds of Indiana Business Council (IBC) respondents feel their business culture fosters innovation. That’s just one of the findings from the most recent survey of the IBC, formed by Walker and Inside INdiana Business. Fifty-nine percent feel their company is effective at innovation, while 13 percent disagree.
This study reports on how respondents feel about innovation within their companies. The findings include:
“Innovation at Hoosier companies is alive and strong but the survey findings show there is room for improvement,” says Gerry Dick, president of Grow INdiana Media Ventures LLC and host of Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick. “We continue to see a gap between the views of company leaders and employees when it comes to the corporate culture of innovation. But a strong majority of Hoosier respondents believe their companies are willing to take risks.”
The study suggests some respondents may not know how innovation fits into their workplace:
There is also a large perception gap between CEOs and staff-level employees.
Created by Walker and Inside INdiana Business, the Indiana Business Council is an online panel that monitors the trends of Indiana business. New studies will launch every other month, featuring a short survey developed by Walker focusing on a specific, timely business topic. Currently, the IBC has more than 4,000 participants.To learn more about the results of each study, tune into to Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, which airs on 15 television stations statewide.
