Use web video

Short video clips are an easy and effective way to ensure employees see innovation successes – large or small – regularly celebrated, which helps boost motivation, and also acts as informal ‘training’ in what innovation looks like. Videos can be hosted on a YouTube channel and displayed prominently on the landing page of a DOT’s internal website.

Innovation I-Fairs

Get innovations shared by holding annual fairs where participants get to learn about new innovations that they can take home and implement. For the last several years, individual Caltrans districts have organized their own annual innovation fairs at which innovations the District has undertaken to address a wide range of issues including safety improvements, congestion reduction, efficient project delivery acceleration, higher quality requiring less maintenance, carbon footprint reduction and response to climate change are shared and highlighted.
