Abstract

Creativity and innovation are key to the success of today’s organizations. Many industries must constantly adapt to new technology, new customer demands, and other requests or requirements. To do so, they depend heavily on their employees’ ability to innovate or accomplish tasks in a creative manner. However, relatively little research has been conducted in the organizational realm examining the effects of occupational stress on organizational members’ ability to innovate in their workplace. This analysis will briefly review the current literature pertaining to workplace creativity, innovation, and stress. After examining the general findings, suggestions for further research in this area will be discussed.
