At HCL, we firmly believe in ideapreneurship™ - our unique culture of grass-roots, business-driven, customer-focused innovation, in which every employee has a license to ideate. We empower and encourage individual employees at all levels of the organization to come up with innovative solutions to customer’s business challenges. These inspired employees think of new ideas and take them to fruition.
This vibrant entrepreneurial culture is powered by HCL’s ‘Employees First’ values, that has given rise to institutional and grass-root programs that help seed ideas, mentor creativity and harvest innovation. This culture is evidenced by powerful seed platforms such as Value Portal, Mad JAM and LeadGen. The Value Portal encourages co-creation of value and has generated over 28,000 ideas on live client projects; MAD JAM celebrates outstanding ideas from within HCL that have been implemented for clients; and LeadGen is a grassroot level, opportunity spotting program for HCL employees to contribute directly to HCL’ topine.
