What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Tegus, we believe innovation is a function of culture, action-orientation, and intense customer focus. Sure there can be some great tactics and initiatives you can implement to promote innovation - hackathons, being receptive to feedback, allowing our teams to explore outside their core day-to-day - but in our mind innovation stems from culture.
