Everyone wants more creative and innovative employees, and companies are looking for the right recipe of changes to make to the environment, policies, rules, structure, organisation, training, management and many other things to find the right formula to generate creativity and innovation.   But what if the answer isn’t open office space or an office beer cooler, but a higher engagement score?
