ESB's Innovation Academy is designed to build competency in customer centric innovation across the group to support delivery of our Net Zero strategy.
Each year, all ESB staff are invited to participate in the academy with 20 employees selected from across the group. This mix of experience and perspectives brings fresh thinking and a new approach to innovating – which is incredibly important to help us meet our strategic objectives and supports our ambition to find different ways of working at ESB.
The programme is run in conjunction with UCD Innovation Academy and is delivered through a highly experiential and practical, action-based learning process built around the four pillars of creativity, collaboration, curiosity and communication. The programme is designed to build innovation capability in the business, improve collaboration internally and externally with customers and to provide a new and different approach to addressing business challenges.
