At Cox Media Group, we believe everyone can be an innovator — not just the creative types in black turtlenecks and wireframe glasses (sorry/RIP, Steve.)

In 2016, an election year, we are democratizing innovation across CMG with our new Kickbox program. 

The Kickbox program is a self-guided innovation curriculum intended to bubble up the best ideas and best practices from across our company. The training takes one work day, but the benefits will last for a career. For each participant, the self-guided program -- which is meant to bring your location's best ideas to life -- will last 4-8 weeks (depending on the complexity) and be completed in your discretionary time at work. That’s right — you don’t get to quit your day job: In order to succeed, your supervisor will need to BELIEVE in what you are doing and feel good about giving you a little time each week to work on this.

CMG Kickbox, patterned after Adobe’s highly successful open source-program, allows anyone within CMG to:

  • Apply for the program
  • Attend training (in person or online) 
  • Then qualify for an innovation kit and a $1,000 budget to help you prototype your idea.

Stay tuned!
