Creativity

All business organizations, large and small, count on dependability on and consistency from their employees. Managers need to know that their employees capably handle both routine assignments and special projects, and that they complete them within specified deadlines. Everyday tasks and responsibilities are often repetitive and mundane, yet organizations could not function without them.

At the same time, businesses looking to gain or maintain their competitive advantage must be innovative and daring. Creativity is the spark that provides the impetus for a new product, technology or service that can transform an entire industry. Creative ideas enable businesses to move forward. Indeed, companies that have built a reputation for innovation enjoy great respect and admiration.
