Open innovation encourages the exchange of knowledge between scientific players, public institutions and business partners, and it is at the core of Opinno’s business model. Opinno is a global consultancy firm supporting companies around the world in the science and technology sector by leading digital transformations and implementing innovation strategies among companies. Opinno’s innovative consultants act as mentors to companies around the world, and we suit our actions to our words by introducing internal mentorship as well. Opinno invites speakers and experts from across the spectrum to share their wealth of knowledge with the Opinno team, from banking and science experts to creative arts and design experts. We see value in collaboration, and this is why:
We are part of an evolving industry, and we need to evolve with it
Digital transformations involve continuous improvements, as technology is continually advancing and evolving. This is why Opinno invites industry leaders to enlighten our team through digital talks and company breakfasts. Further, Opinno values interactions within a competitive environment. As an industry evolves, we welcome healthy competition to exchange ideas and knowledge.
Happy workers are productive workers
A study by economists at the University of Warwick discovered that, “Happiness [in the workplace] led to a 12% spike in productivity, while unhappy workers proved to be 10% less productive.” The study further revealed that 12% of workers are not engaged at work, thus the incorporation of expert speakers and thought leaders is intended to boost engagement and overall morale. Actions and activities that instill knowledge in employees, spark creative thinking, and/or improve the culture of the workplace are likely to encourage a happy workforce.
From a managerial perspective, an employee from the Information Technology team and the Accounting team deserves an equal learning opportunity when it comes to evolving with the digital world. Key professionals and experts in their sector are therefore welcomed to share their insights and open up discussions, debates, and practical outputs between all departments.
Fosters a Positive Company Culture
Manish Goel, a board member of Aerospike Inc stated, “No matter how much work is put into developing strategies, all have to work in an environment where they feel they can succeed and are supported. A great culture has to be fostered.” Opinno’s efforts to continuously foster a supportive and welcoming environment is done, in part, by welcoming expert speakers. This past month, Carolina Blanco, a social worker and technician in social integration was welcomed to Opinno to share her experience on how to manage and encourage diversity in the workplace. During the session, Carolina emphasized that diversity in the workplace goes further than just influencing an open-minded and well-rounded company culture, but also provides financial gains.0
Opinno as an organization invisions a business ecosystem that embraces innovation and digital transformation, and welcomes speakers to foster a corporate culture where the team members also believe in that vision. Opinno collaborates because we believe sharing ideas with executives, with students, and with the world encourages collective intelligence. This commitment to sharing and spreading knowledge can also be demonstrated by the most recent book release of “El Líder Ante la Innovación.” The book is targeted towards CEO’s, executives and advisors that want to understand and partake in the journey that is, innovation.
