The Washington State Productivity Board incentivizes state employees to help state government operate more efficiently. We encourage innovation to eliminate waste and reduce unnecessary spending.

There are two ways state employees can participate and qualify for awards: 

  • Through the Employee Suggestion Program, individuals can suggest ways to save money, generate revenue, and/or improve services within state government. They can earn up to $10,000 for a qualifying idea. 




  • The Teamwork Incentive Program is for two or more employees who help their agency save money or generate revenue. Each team member can receive up to $10,000. 




State employees are invited to share their ideas with us, and submit an application for either program listed above.
