Part of a series of five webinars on the Future of Work based on research from the Work, Employment and Organisation Research Group (WEORG) at Nottingham University Business School. The webinars will be 60-minutes long and will include a 30-minute talk and a 30-minute Q&A. The Webinars will be presented on MS Teams.
Creativity and innovation skills are widely acknowledged as being desirable in the workplace for problem solving, knowledge creation and the development of new opportunities. Such skills are also recognised as being ‘future proof’, especially in the face of new technologies. Yet, employers often reject creative ideas despite increasingly asking employees to suggest them. This webinar will focus on why this mismatch happens, specifically drawing on evidence from a global manufacturing organisation.
