Tips to fostering creativity in the workplace

Posted: 18 June 2021


We’ve almost reached the middle of the year and for many people, energy levels are waning. If you feel as though you’re hitting a brick wall, there are several ways that you can foster creativity in the workplace.

Here are a few of our suggestions:

  1. Create a space for brainstorming: Set aside a dedicated time for letting creative juices flow. Setting a stage for lateral thinking will have a positive effect on the business as group interaction enhances collaborative creativity.
  2. Encourage individuality: It’s important that your employees or coworkers feel valued so that they can perform at their optimum. When employees believe that their voice is being heard, the business benefits from their best work.
  3. Set up a stimulating environment: Consider the sound, colour, temperature and lighting of the working area and make sure that all aspects are optimised for productivity.
  4. Encourage anonymous recommendations: Sometimes, employees may be intimidated to offer valuable suggestions. Constructive feedback can be used to improve the business. 
  5. Respond to good suggestions: Acting on good ideas is an effective way to encourage employees to offer feedback and be creative in the workplace. 

This week, we featured three businesses whose creative edge has helped bolster their business. In addition, they make use of Storage King’s convenient and secure self storage facilities which allow them to expand their business while maintaining low overheads. See who we profiled below:
