Are creative people more successful in the workplace?
Does being creative lead to more success in the workplace? Do you earn more? Are you more cooperative with team members? Are you more liked by your boss? Do you get the promotions?
Creativity is an essential part of the workplace because it not only fosters innovation, but research proves that it encourages cooperation among employees. Interview questions at hugely successful companies such as Google require applicants to think outside the box.
However, research by Harvard University also proves that creative people may be more dishonest. There is also evidence that creative people cannot work together in groups and tend to be very independent.
I think, however, creative people are more successful in the workplace because the benefits of being creative outweigh the costs. After all, the companies with the best ideas will bring in the most money.
