Business leaders strive to encourage creativity in the workplace, recognising it as a precursor to innovation, as well as a major factor in business growth, competitive advantage and organisational survival. Yet, many organisations still have significant untapped reserves of employee creativity. Dr Rachael Lamb will explore why employee creativity often goes unvoiced or unrecognised and what organisations can do to encourage it.
