What an innovative environment can give your company

An innovative environment has a positive effect on both business performance and the world around. We distinguish two types of influence: business impact (economic effect) and social impact (significance for society as a whole).

How to estimate IKRA’s impact on your business

For example, of having your own in-house team. We draw up two business models and consider the benefits of creating your own creative and innovative team. The key indicator is the amount of money saved during the period of transition from outsourcing to in-house (two years in the example below). We take into account business’ particularity in our calculations, such as average market salaries of specialists.

10 000 000 $
Work with outsourcing companies
4 500 000 $
Implementing an in-house team

Having your own team is not only about saving on outsourcing, but also about increasing your own assets: developing your own services, teaching materials, community projects that the company can monetize on its own. With outsourcing this effect is difficult to envision.

How to estimate social impact on your business

The goal-setting system for employees combines their personal goals and the goals of the company. This leads to increased loyalty and boosts the employer's brand value. We find out what is valuable to people by exploring different forms of capital. It allows us to make the work of your employees more efficient and reduce the number of conflicts in the team.

The OKR system
Objectives & Key Results
Helps to act transparently, improving business performance.
Helps to motivate people to achieve small everyday goals

An innovation environment gives way to socially significant projects: when the activity of the innovator is aimed at positive changes in the world around him, his level of motivation increases sharply.

Many projects become more impactful and significant in an innovative environment, which allows the company to create new breakthrough products and generate more profit.

We design and carry out practical sessions helping businesses to foster innovation, work as a team, critically evaluate ideas, as well as find solutions to work-related problems.
