Sammanfattning

This article investigates the notion of attractive workplaces in the specific context of creative professional employment. The concept of an attractive workplace is explored as that where employees are rewarded by having their creative needs satisfied. Based on observations and interview data at knowledge-based firms in the UK, we look at the extent to which employees are ‘rewarded’ with the offer of creative work and the degree to which this offer really involves greater benefits for employees in terms of professional prestige and the confirmation of their identities as professional workers in the creative industries. Our research indeed shows that creative needs remain important components of the attractive workplace, but increasingly also of importance are the extrinsic rewards of an acceptable work-life balance as the age profile of the technology worker changes and technology stagnates.
