Turning Innovation into Action Through Innovation and Internal Partnerships


Quicken Loans and its family of dozens of companies encourages 17,000+ team members to actively take part in their culture of innovation. Dedicated programs empower every team member to turn their ideas into action. Some of the very best ideas even lead to new companies, with the creator appointed as CEO.

dPOP is one of many ideas of a business that originated from an idea presented and developed by a Quicken Loans employee. Melissa Price was the Director of Facilities for Quicken Loans in 2013 when one of her ideas led to the creation of dPOP, a startup specializing in bespoke workplace design. Since then, dPOP and Quicken Loans have worked side-by-side to continue evolving the Quicken Loans Detroit campus to provide all team members with an environment that encourages their best performance and maximize their full human potential. This trusted partnership has enabled both companies to explore innovation in the future of workplace that neither company could have achieved on its own.

In this presentation see how the collaboration between Melissa Price, CEO at dPOP and KimArie Yowell, Head of Talent Development at Quicken Loans, created sustainable and holistic solutions that helped enhance engagement and optimized employee effectiveness.
