The most innovative companies are turning to art as a tool for creating astimulating work environment
Companies like google, facebook and apple have understood that having a creative workplace allows employees to not only feel happier and more connected, but to have the freedom to think outside the box and come up with creative solutions to problem solving. The same creative thinking that goes into art making goes into coming up with innovative ideas. Its the same muscle, just applied to a different situation.
Team Building, an overused phrase!
Developing trust amongst employees starts with listening and spinning off of each others' ideas. Sometimes the best ideas start with a conversation, a thought shared over a cup of coffee and not necessarily in the board room. Doing art together, encourages that type of creative dialog and openness.
