Creativity is important in the workplace as it can benefit both the organisation and employees by enabling businesses to be flexible and allow them to branch out in different directions. Our research conducted with our partners Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has given us quantitative data on how creativity is now considered one of the top skills individuals can have to truly seize opportunities, adapt and embrace change in today’s workplaces.

When they face challenges that they are unable to solve through conventional methods, they look to seek creative solution.
