Abstract

Given the routine job setting, and its lack of tangible resources and motivators commonly linked to creativity (see Amabile, 1988), our models draws upon alternative resource types, inducements, and employee attributes that may prompt the creation of novel ideas that can be highly useful. The series of direct and mediated linkages we have proposed here should culminate in a complex sequential model that depicts the manner in which exposure to contextual factors, job control and coworker support, over time should trigger an intrapersonal engagement state leading to personal initiative, that when guided by a conformity orientation, results in employees offering creative ideas which are implementable in the workplace.
