Nurturing Creative Skills for Enhanced Human Capital

in partnership with Warwick Business School

The Challenge:

Amidst an era where technology presents unparalleled challenges to human capability, creativity emerges as a crucial skill in the HR leaders’ arsenal. However, building and fostering a creative workforce can be difficult. This is particularly challenging when time and resource constraints push leaders to focus on the status quo rather than trying something new. How do HR leaders overcome these challenges in order to build creative capacity in their organisation, a culture that will support it, and ultimately drive business success?

Digital Incubator Discussion Points:

  • What is the role of creativity in problem-solving, fostering innovation, and driving organisational growth in the face of technological and economic disruptions?
  • What are the essential elements of a creative work environment within HR teams and the broader organisation?
  • How can leaders encourage creativity while promoting psychological safety, open communication, and a culture that encourages experimentation and learning from failures?
  • What are some of the potential metrics and evaluation methods to assess the effectiveness of creative initiatives?
  • How can HR leaders advocate for more creative initiatives and gain support from top management?

Digital Incubator Outcomes:

  • Access to practical approaches to encourage creative problem-solving.
  • Strategies for promoting a growth mindset, open communication, and providing time and space for employees to explore new ideas.
  • Clear understanding of how to link creativity with diverse perspectives to generate creative solutions and foster a supportive workplace culture.
  • How to implement reward systems, acknowledge innovative contributions, and create platforms to celebrate creativity.
