creative hour

freetimeDaniel Pink, in his book DRIVE, mentioned an interesting concept that many companies have adopted. Free time.

Motivation is the fuel to invention. Consider the output if employees loved what they were doing. Well if you are struggling… we call that person an artist. We flock to see their art. Some companies understand this. Google has had many of its current projects created utilizing this creative time.

Consider letting employees get to the goal their own way using different paths.  Set aside time for people to work on passions – they can be work related. What could it hurt?
