Employee driven innovation is essential to employee performance, attitudes, and overall work experience. The front line employee is in the best position to innovate as they are the most experienced with their daily routines. By shifting the innovation process from a select group to the individual employee, the front line employee will have the ability to contribute significantly to their organization. Employee driven innovation from the front line employee sits on the assumption that employees have abilities to create innovation and that this potential can be realized and exploited to the benefit of both the organization and its employees. This study examined the change in employee performance and attitudes when the process of innovating moved as a function of a select group to the employee.
