One of the strongest predictors of creativity is whether employees feel adequately challenged by their job. Those who feel like their job, and specifically the objectives and goals they are set, and challenging and stretch their capabilities, behave more creatively.

This effect is enhanced when employees are allowed to work autonomously, as opposed to being given step-by-step instructions on how to reach these goals by their manager. That is, creative behaviour occurs when employees have the freedom to work out for themselves how to reach their challenging targets.
