    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.
