Although my presentation was not good, our team has caught very good points. According to me, a man sees rarely both productivity and creativity in business at the same time, because it can be found in very unique business platforms, although almost all employers or CEO tries to achieve them. However, there are some elements that may help to increase productivity and creativity sparks in working environment such as improving the working facilities conditions, hiring more qualified and smart employees instead of rockies, strength the collaboration and forget the competition within company, etc.
As we assume that official working hour is 48 hours in UK, a typical employee’s 42,85% of time runs in office, factory or anywhere belonged to company(I excluded sleeping times). How is possible to work incredibly productive and creative in a boring facility? Working environments suppose to provide working willingness and needs perfect with different items such as contemporary interior architecture or colourful and visual billboards in order to not seem like ordinary, because those people who works there as a white-collar are going to create or produce innovation which is not common. For instance, Google’s office which is amazingly decorated provides not only extraordinary working experience but also give their employees good spirits.
Besides working environment, recruiting high skilled and smart people creates qualified area and delighted discussions which have a different perspective from a typical team works. I believe that working or studying within a group consists of smart people forces people to become like them, even you are less talented than others. Furthermore, training the unqualified rockie not only spends much time and money and you may not forecast the output.
Furthermore, due to the steep hierarchy in corporations, competition may be seen as cure of creativity in short-term; however, it really kills the collaboration and solidarity of team-work in long-term. Despite inner competition and individual awards, co-operation working methodology should be achieved and team award suppose to be applied by top-management.
