I'm convinced that every employee has at least one $50,000 idea on the tip of his or her tongue. Yet most companies do little, if anything, to solicit those ideas. If they do decide to take action, it's often in the form of a "Suggestion" box placed in the lunch room with (for some unknown reason) a lock on it!
The result? Most suggestion programs often grind to a half soon after they are started.
