Welcome to ideasUK



We have worked with organisations all over the world with the aim to introduce and enhance innovation in the workplace. As we steadily approach our 30th year in operation, we know the importance of reassessing and reevaluating in order to stay current and relevant.


With that in mind, this year has seen big changes for us across the board, with our website having undergone one of its biggest changes to date.


We have got new tools, new content and a fresh new feel to the site.... and that's just the start.


Have a look around, see what you think and if you have any feedback for us, then do let us know as we are always eager to hear your thoughts on how we can improve ourselves further.




ideasUK is pleased to announce the launch of the



to recognise the importance of support from the top of your organisation


with the inaugural presentation at the ideasUK 30th International Conference, 10 November 2016


What is it?

There are many factors that contribute to the success of an idea scheme/involvement programme within an organisation; the engagement of employees; having a scheme that is well resourced; reward & recognition, all of which are positively influenced through the support of an enthusiastic sponsor.


Do you have a senior leader within your organisation who has provided
on-going support for both yourself and your ideas scheme?


If yes we would ask you, as ideas/innovation managers,
to nominate them for providing that essential leadership.


To enter please complete the attached form stating why your leader should be recognised.


Please return completed forms to zena@ideasuk.com by FRIDAY 21st OCTOBER


The winner will be announced during the award ceremony of the ideasUK conference on the evening of Thursday 10th November


A reminder to book your conference places now!


30th International Conference - Hensol Castle @ The Vale Resort & Spa Cardiff, 9/10 November 2016





How does your suggestion scheme compare to the best of the best?

Achieved Silver or Gold Accreditation and looking to gain Platinum?

Already achieved Platinum and looking to ensure you retain Platinum?

Then the ideasUK Accreditation is a must have for you and your organisation!

The ideasUK Accreditation programme is the way for organisations to give both internal and external prominence to their employee innovation scheme. The Accreditation process subjects your employee innovation programme to an external assessment by ideasUK. An end to end review of the programme is carried out and guidance given on areas of strength and where to focus improvement efforts.


Based on the levels achieved organisations will be awarded a Silver, Gold or Platinum Certification, presented at our annual conference in November.


Previous winners of Platinum Certification will be awarded a supplementary number to signify the 'consecutive' years that they have maintained this level of excellence.


This year the questions have been updated and an employee engagement section added. The new questions are available for you to review on the members section of the website.


Whilst accreditation is carried out in September/October, we are now taking bookings and fixing dates. The form is available to complete on the website and can be accessed by clicking here.


Also available is a scheme 'health-check', an early scheme review prior to full accreditation. This is free to members, although for our friends in the Middle-East there will be a charge for travel and accommodation.

ideasUK consistently pulls together speakers and formats to engage all those attending and continues to evolve over time to reflect workplace trends.

Our unique experience starts with this year's amazing venue - Hensol Castle! We are holding both the conference sessions and Idea of the Year Award Ceremony in a 400 year old castle on the edge of Cardiff. The castle has a special place in British History with one of the owners overseeing construction of 'Big Ben' part of the Houses of Parliament!



The moment you have all been waiting for has arrived.....
