For young people seeking innovation in the organizations where they work, education as a sector may not be the most conducive environment. “Millennials,” who make up a quarter of the current workforce, consider educational institutions the least innovative, at least when compared to retail, technology, healthcare and advertising, marketing and PR. This segment of the population, also known as Generation Y, were born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s, putting them somewhere in their early 30s and younger. Nearly half of this group — 46 percent — indicated that the school districts, colleges, and universities where they’re employed have outdated collaboration practices. More than half said they believe their employers make it tough for ideas to be shared or taken to the next level. Sixty-one percent disagree or strongly disagree that their organizations have a “simple process” for converting good ideas from brainstorming sessions into a “productive outcome.”
