Does your business environment spark creativity? Asks R&R Business Consultants
There’s no one right way to foster creativity, but R&R Business Consultants has reviewed the best approaches businesses can implement to ensure they get the creative juices of their workforce flowing.
Creativity in the workplace can accelerate business growth and opportunities. Keen to encourage entrepreneurs, R&R Business Consultants believe everyone should step up regardless of role, department or any other segregating label. It is important for each person within a business to promote their new ideas in order to feel part of the movement.
R&R Business Consultants share their top tips for creating an innovative working environment:
Creativity is everybody’s job, including yours – The marketing department isn’t solely responsible for generating new ideas in the workplace. Entrepreneurs should always be looking for ways to enhance existing products or services. Sometimes the seed of an idea can be improved during a brainstorming session. R&R Business Consultants encourage their independent contractors to speak up when they have new ideas.
Permission granted – As a business leader, it is vital to support a workforce in actively putting forward new and exciting ideas. By creating a supportive culture, workers shouldn’t feel embarrassed to put forward a new outlook. R&R Business Consultants take the opportunity to listen to their contractors during their regular morning meetings.
It’s about teamwork and tapping your network – Cities are capable of accelerating human creativity. Geoffrey West, urban theorist, believes that cities can increase creativity by up to 15% due to the increased social and business networks available in this environment. R&R Business Consultants consider the theory to be transferable to companies who encourage innovation from all team members.
Creativity is work, make space for it – Like any other task, creativity deserves a slot in the day. Everyone needs to take time to allow the creative juices to get geared up. R&R Business Consultants encourages entrepreneurs to find their peak time when their brain is fully recharged, and the mind can be free from distractions and schedule in some creative time.
