There is no one way to define creativity; from artistic expression, to invention and problem solving.  The 21st April has been designated as ‘World Creativity and Innovation Day’ (WCID) by the United Nations to raise awareness of the role of creativity and innovation in all aspects of human development.

On WCID, the United Nations encourage us all to remember that innovation is essential for harnessing the potential of our nations.

“Innovation, creativity and mass entrepreneurship can provide new momentum for economic growth and job creation. It can expand opportunities for everyone, including women and youth. It can provide solutions to some of the most pressing problems such as poverty eradication and the elimination of hunger.”

By fostering innovation and creativity among our teams, we can improve the culture in our organisations and contribute more to our economy and the world at large.  We urge you to mark the day in your own organisation by looking at the processes you have in place for inspiring creativity and innovation among your teams.  If someone has a great idea, how do they pass it on?  If someone does something innovative, how are they recognised?

In our Workplace Innovation workshop series, we introduce the different practices behind the concept of workplace innovation, and we demonstrate how they can help you to achieve positive benefits for your company.
