Employee suggestion systems are rooted in the concept that nonmanagers can contribute ideas which will improve the operation and productivity of their businesses or Government agencies. Suggestion systems are essentially a means of obtaining employees ideas and using them. The technique generally used is to pay cash awards to employees whose ideas are accepted and used. In the Federal Government, the employee suggestion system is part of the incentive awards program monitored by the Civil Service Commissions CSCs Office of Incentive Systems.
