It has been said time and time again that a company’s greatest asset is its talent. More specifically, it is the kind of people they employ and the talents they bring that can contribute greatly to the company’s productivity and success. This is why many companies invest heavily on talent, and this is true even today in the digital age.
No computer or automated program can replace a perfectly capable, creative, talented and critical-thinking person. Though most of these technologies can help lighten and speed up work processes and production, it cannot come up with plans, strategies and hard written output like a human being can. But how does talent exactly contribute to a company’s success?

We're on a roll here at Vetter, with two new features being added this month (March 2016). Below you can find a brief outline of the features. To get any of these new 'Power Features' switched on or find out more about how they might meet your specific needs, contact us.
Connector – enable employees without email addresses to participate
This feature enables companies who have staff that do not have their own email address to log in and participate in Vetter. This is great for manufacturing and/or non-office based businesses. We've already had some great success with this, with some of our UK customers.
Idea moderation - approve ideas before the go public
Would you like a little more control over what gets submitted to Vetter? Then try out our Idea Moderation feature. If this is switched on, then all ideas will be sent to the Admins of the account for approval, before they are posted live. Approving or Rejecting an idea is as simple as clicking a link (see screenshot).
Today we proudly announce a neat new feature - Idea Owners.
This feature enables Admins to assign any user as an ‘Idea Owner’ of a particular Vetted Idea. This ‘Idea Owner’ can then provide feedback on the idea (if/when it will be implemented etc.) via the Vetted Ideas/Idea Status pages.
If there’s one thing every business manager knows, it’s that an engaged, proactive employee is a happy employee. Being proactive in the workplace requires a high level of enthusiasm and engagement, and that kind of attitude always affects productivity in a positive way.

Let’s take a look at a few employee involvement techniques that may greatly inspire employees to become more involved and engaged at the workplace, and thus become happier and more productive workers.
Since its first major implementation in the mid-1980s, Six Sigma has become synonymous with quality improvement. Its roots, however, stretch back more than one hundred years to the early and mid-nineteenth century when Carl Friedrich Gauss showed how probability could be represented by a bell-shaped or “normal” curve that peaks around the mean or expected value and quickly falls off towards infinity.
In the 1920s, the concept that would become Six Sigma took another step forward when Walter Shewhart showed that three sigma from the mean is the point where a process requires correction. Another sixty years would go by before engineer Bill Smith presented the concept of Six Sigma to Motorola Chairman Bob Galvin who then incorporated the metrics into the company’s processes. Six Sigma Black Belts arrived, things got ‘lean’ and we then arrive at to our first definition of Six Sigma provided by its developers and summed up nicely by Wikipedia....
