Rewarding Innovation – Can New Ideas Be Bought?

Michael J. Gibbs, Clinical Professor of Economics

Can creativity be motivated by rewards? This question is the subject of controversy among psychologists and economists. Prof Michael J. Gibbs, Clinical Professor of Economics, provides some new insights into this question by discussing his latest research on innovation at an Asian IT services company. The company uses interesting and unusual practices to motivate employees to generate new ideas on behalf of clients- including an experiment involving non-monetary rewards for new ideas.

Join Prof Gibbs as he reveals findings from the experiment and explains the implications for motivating creativity in the workplace.
