Within the realm of Employee-Driven Innovation (EDI), current understandings of how EDI can be facilitated are rooted in extensive studies conducted in Western contexts, particularly in Nordic countries. While recent research has expanded to encompass Asian contexts, such studies remain scarce, making this study one of the few current endeavours to study the drivers of EDI in the Asian context and marks the pioneering exploration of EDI in Singapore.

Beyond understanding how EDI can be facilitated in Asian contexts, this study also introduces an EDI assessment tool. While tools measuring EDI processes exist, there has been no previous attempt, to our knowledge, to develop a tool that comprehensively assesses how organisations fare on various personal and workplace factors crucial to the enactment of EDI.

The theoretical and practical significance of such a tool is noteworthy. From a theoretical standpoint, it contributes to the burgeoning EDI literature of how EDI can be facilitated within an Asian context. On a practical level, it equips organisations with a valuable instrument to evaluate their performance in promoting EDI, laying the foundation for more inclusive and effective innovation strategies. By developing and validating this tool, the study aims to assist organisations in gauging their EDI promotion performance and, in turn, pave the way for enhanced innovation strategies that are both inclusive and effective.
