Study has it that most workers tend to think of their jobs as more of a valuable life experience than as a mere paycheck. A conducive working environment and a satisfied workforce promotes growth and prosperity. Creativity is considered as the missing piece of a puzzle in a modern workplace.

There are varieties of tools out there that can be used to instill creative sensibility in your workers. One of the latest trend in the corporate work environment is the introduction of time and productivity tools. However care must be taken not to trigger a feeling of anxiety or rush among your workers. Other tools include project manager virtual boards, shared files and documents and some working apps like teams.
