Does HR have any impact on employee creativity?

Research Briefing

Largely due to the rapid changes organisations and businesses are continually undergoing these days, one of the most important aspects of organisational life are innovation behaviours.

Feeding the requirement for organisational innovation necessitates at least some level of employee creativity, which is an increasingly sought-after attribute with many organisations including creativity in their recruitment and selection requirements.
