What motivates Employees to be more Innovative?

In the current crisis, it's important to keep your innovation effort at a high level. Martha E. Mangelsdorf writes in MITSloan Management Review Vol 40 No 3 p. 24 about an analysis by Professors Henry Sauermann and Wesley M. Cohen on what makes employees tick to be innovative. Out of 8 different types of work benefits (salary, fringe benefits, job security, intellectual challenge, independence, opportunities for advancement, responsibility and contribution to society) intellectual challenge was strongest associated with being innovative. Job security the weakest.
Why? The authors suggest that having a preference for challenge may lead scientists to select more demanding and innovative projects. Or the type of motivation may influence certain cognitive processes in the brain such as creative thinking. You can download the survey results for $5 here.
