Somers, G. Vos, M. Contributor Bitran, I. (editor) Bitetti, L. (editor) Conn, S. (editor) Fishburn, J. (editor) Huizingh, E. (editor) Torkkeli, M. (editor) Yang, J. (editor) Publication year 2021 Abstract We investigated employee innovation adoption in logistics firms, assuming that involving employees in the renewal activities of a firm can be a conscious strategy. We think that such strategies make employees adopt innovation faster, which is good for the innovative capability for the firm as a whole. We studies the mediating role of organisational mindfulness and employee involvement in the relationships between competition strategy and supportive leadership and employee innovation adoption. To investigate this, a unique sample of 116 managers or owners of Dutch logistics companies completed a survey on innovation within their companies and the adoption of innovation by their employees. Results show that a firm's competition strategy that values quality and not only costs, and the presence of organisational mindfulness, a firm's cultural characteristic that makes employees alert to solve issues and improve effective cooperation, is positively related to employee innovation adoption. This study emphasizes to utilise the space that every organisation has to make their own future strategic choices, i.e. to make the best use of employee involvement.
