VAE have launched our first Innovation Challenge, which will become an annual event for our company. Our CEO Ben Carter launched the VAE Innovation Challenge, which was open to all VAE Group employees throughout Australia and New Zealand.
The main rule for the challenge, was that the innovation must relate to one or more of the VAE Non-Negotiables, which outlines our VAE Values. The submission could be undertaken individually, or as a group.
The prizes for the Innovation Challenge total $10,000. In addition to receiving the prize money, any applicant receiving a high recommendation will also be asked to present to the VAE board to secure funding for the concept.
The Innovation Committee received 14 submissions in total, with eight finalists selected.
The final eight presented their innovations to all VAE employees to vote for the winning innovation for 2020.
The quality and preparation provided by the eight finalists has been amazing, it’s not going to be an easy decision, that’s for sure!
Stay tuned for the results, and details of the winning Innovation!
