A creative environment has many positive tangible outcomes in the workplace. Such outcomes include increased creative and innovative behaviours but also lead to reduced negative outcomes such as employee absenteeism. An increased creative environment leads to engaged and motivated employees, allowing them more freedom and control, which leads to increased job satisfaction. Increased satisfaction leads to increased motivation and commitment. This leads to increased positive work outcomes and reduced negative outcomes, such as absenteeism. This can be seen across all job roles, creative specialists and non-creative specialists alike.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
