There was a vision to build an idea sharing platform serving the HSBC community on a global scale. The vision transformed into innovate@HSBC, a highly interactive two day event organized by the innovate@HSBC global team. The events travel across the group annually to promote employee engagement, collaboration, and innovation. Participants of the events are employees from various areas of the bank, forming a diverse pool of expertise. The participants of the events proof out solutions for efficiency gains, sustainability, streamlining, and creative innovation for the bank. Some of the most innovative solutions are transformed into reality, as they are progressed into software delivery projects utilizing next-generation technologies and deployed to various HSBC entities.
