Bringing innovation to life

We ran two Hack Days, in November and April, bringing together people from across our business to create solutions to real business problems in a short 36-hour period.

This year, the themes were Simplify and Choose your own adventure, encouraging teams to remove complexity and eliminate boundaries in their solutions.

Twenty-eight teams participated in each of the Hack Days, involving more than 500 people from across our business.

The ideas ranged from packaging for sharps containers to be sent through the mail to developing packing with a unique identifier attached to a person, so that the packaging can be used more than once.

The innovation team assesses the winning ideas for their potential customer impact or commercial appeal.
