Offices for Creative Work: Digital Artists’ Notions about Supportive Physical Work Environments
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: The international Journal of Human Resource Management
The purpose of the study was to describe digital artists’ notions of the role of the physical work environment for creative work in an organizational context. The present qualitative research was based on 13 in-depth interviews. The physical work environment was considered to offer three types of support for the artists’ creative work: functional, psychosocial, and inspirational. Creative processes would find better breeding ground if functional support, such as adequate lighting and tools, and psychosocial support, such as spatial possibilities for both privacy and communication, were provided. Without inspirational support, such as brainstorming rooms, dynamic planning, and imaginative interior design, the work outcome would not be as creative.
