Vlad Dediu, Professor Stavroula Leka, and Dr Aditya Jain are authors of a paper on job demands, job resources and innovative work behaviour in the European Union, published in the European Journal of Work & Organizational Psychology.
Their study found that the jobs most conducive to innovative work behaviour are those that are flexible and can be adapted as the requirements of the innovative process change. At the same time, it is necessary to consistently offer employees sufficient challenges in the form of exciting and multifaceted jobs, as well as a combination between sufficient agency in how they conduct their tasks and responsibilities and adequate support and encouragement from managers and colleagues.
