October is perhaps the most artistic month of the year, with Halloween’s fun-filled pumpkin carving and creative costume designs a spook-tactular highlight for many. That’s why we’ve decided to make Creativity our Module of the Month.
As well as embellishing our homes in spooky decorations on the 31st, more and more people worldwide are taking part in the imaginative Inktober challenge. First started in 2009 by illustrator Jack Parker, the challenge encourages people to create thirty-one drawings in thirty-one days.
A perfect opportunity to unleash your artistic side, Inktober could be a great way to encourage more creativity in your workplace.
Many art schools teach creatives to start drawing randomly, even if you have no aim, as it gets your brain working and eventually you’ll draw something that sparks a great idea! Within the workplace, this could help to generate new and innovative ideas and encourage your team to think outside the box.
Research shows creativity is now one of the top skills that employers look for as thriving organisations are those that develop creative talents. That’s why we included our Creativity module in the Workplace Wellbeing range, exploring how to encourage creative tendencies, what to do to support creativity and its importance in the workplace.
