´╗┐Creativity in The Workplace

from: C P Gray





Being creative in the workplace is not so difficult. All it takes is open-mindedness and patience and, of course, sparks of talent and skills and everything necessary to being creative follows.



Creativity in the workplace is not all about decorating your room or your cubicle with the best colors or arranging furniture according to your feng shui guru. It is also about the company atmosphere that can make you, and your officemates, more productive and efficient, thus, more creative.



You can have a suggestive system developed so that whoever is in charge of that department will be able to consider your creative ideas. This said suggestion system should be able to reach every employee in all locations operated by the company. It should also be user-friendly, thus easy to use and not complicated because of forms and red tape.



Once it is already placed, there must be a team of employees per department to meet up monthly and receive the new ideas. After doing so, they must come up with a report regarding the development of creative ideas in the past. The said team should also have the power to give rewards to those employees who came up with creative ideas that had a very positive impact.



Developing a company atmosphere that can endorse creativity as a commodity of utter value is not as difficult as you might think. An employee's computer is definitely an asset, but you must not neglect the fact that so is his or her brain. The upper management should give their permission to those employees who really want to work on developing new products and ideas.



Now, if you are within the upper management, you cannot just sit tight while your employees do the developing. You can also move your employees around to be able to develop communication patterns to avoid having them sleep on the job. They not only come up with new ideas but they get new friends too. Either way, they have a prize.



Your employees can also observe their fellow employees while working to be able to be more constructive. You can also arrange for a company retreat so that your employees can talk to one another informally and share pieces of information. Interaction and communication are, indeed, important because creative actions do not develop in a vacuum, but rather, it develops because of team work.



Rewards have been mentioned, but you must keep in mind that these rewards must never be monetary. You must never impose a creative gusto resulting to your employees giving you quite a number of creative ideas just to get a bonus.



But once certain creative ideas beam with success, that is when you can monetarily reward your employees. Show them that their effort and hard work to becoming successful paid off, instead of hindering them to their success. If your company does not have the tools nor the facilities to develop a certain idea, allow your employee to take their idea someplace else, where his or her idea is bound to be developed.



Being creative in the workplace is not so difficult. All it takes is open-mindedness and patience and, of course, sparks of talent and skills and everything necessary to being creative follows.
