Social media supports idea generation & sharing information on development of new products & solutions

 

Social media has become an integral part of the talent engagement process at Intuit and more importantly, it is a means to help us nurture the Intuit culture among our employees. Further, social media tools and platforms go far beyond just providing a convenient and engaging way to interact with employees, as well as external customers.

Social media supports idea generation and sharing information on development of new products and solutions. ‘Brainstorm’, our employee idea hub, is our home-grown online application that allows employees to easily connect and collaborate on new ideas. It is also a central place for innovators to describe their ideas, build teams, capture notes, manage requirements, and share documents. Brainstorm is accessible to all employees and not just product developers. Anyone with a vision can submit their idea to Brainstorm, where colleagues can comment and collaborate on any aspect of it. The idea becomes a breathing entity, always changing and evolving, depending on the idea and the user’s needs.

New employee introduction to Intuit takes place even before they set foot on campus. Along with the welcome kit, new hires are sent a link to our ‘New Employee Welcome Portal’, which helps smoothen the welcoming process, by answering those burning questions that all new hires have.
