Innovation Activities
MAS is committed to building a culture that will make us a more cohesive, integrated and effective organisation. We constantly seek new ways to promote innovation and enterprise at the workplace.

One of the ways through which we seek to do this is the Frequent Flying Minds (FFM) scheme. For example, there were a number of suggestions to enhance organisational knowledge-sharing initiatives, such as refining an online article-sharing platform to allow staff to exchange comments on good articles. There were also suggestions to improve the quality of information provided on the MAS website, such as r evising the format of monthly economic reports and providing spectrum indicators to allow readers to view key information at a glance.

As part of the improvements to the FFM scheme, we funded departments that held brainstorming activities. To encourage innovative ideas, staff with exceptional suggestions were given greater recognition by being featured in the FFM Monthly Highlights newsletter and awarded with special tokens.

To motivate staff to employ creative thinking in their work, we also continued with initiatives such as the quarterly innovation bulletin i-News and the annual Innovation Awards. For the Innovation Speaker Series, we invited professional trainers in creative thinking to share their techniques in enhancing personal creativity.
