Organizational culture has a huge impact on creativity

According to the research we carried out in the fall of 2022, the greatest strength of Finnish organizations is in the atmosphere and self-direction, while the most significant distraction factor is the lack of time and funds resourced for creativity. 16 organizations and more than 600 employees from various industries participated in the study.

Finns' creativity is insight

We mapped the creative performance of individuals with a survey, which was answered by more than 3,000 Finns in the summer of 2022. According to our research, the level of creative performance varies greatly between different industries, age groups and educational levels. Finns' creativity is threatened by a lack of self-confidence, while the greatest potential lies in our insight.
