Staff are being rewarded for their bright ideas as part of a new initiative to promote innovation throughout the Yorwaste Group
A ‘Yorvision’ group has been set up to encourage employees to actively involve themselves in shaping the future of the business.
The group, consisting of Nick Smith, Mary Meyer, Gill Mulroe, Louise Albon, Chris Tomlinson and Geraldine Lear, will help staff at Yorwaste, SJB Recycing and Todd Waste Management to take forward innovative projects identified as part of a Bright Ideas scheme.
Staff who submit ideas will be supported to help turn their bright ideas into projects that can be used within the business.
As well as the £25 that is presented to staff whose bright ideas are taken up, there will now also be an annual award for the most innovative idea.
