What motivates Employees to be more Innovative?
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands

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.
