Worker creativity: A gap?

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority will host the 2007 National Conference on the Creative Economy in October. To build interest in the conference, the Authority recently commissioned a survey on creativity in the workplace.

The authors of the survey indicate that US employers are facing a "creativity gap". The survey found that 88% of workers consider themselves creative, but only 63% said their jobs were creative. The report seems to set the stage for increasing redesign of work and organizations in a way to spur creativity and collaboration.
