Creating Innovatory Climates: R&D Scientists in High‐Technology Organisations

Creating Innovatory Climates: R&D Scientists in High‐Technology Organisations This paper details a study of over 400 R&D scientists in 10 technology‐based organisations. There were two objectives, first, to establish whether employees differentiated between organisation according to their reputations for a commitment to scientific research. Secondly, to identify the factors which ‘determined’ a good or bad reputation. The results indicate that an innovatory climate is the main determinant of an R&D Department's reputation. That is, the extent to which R&D employees believe their organisation is a good place in which to practice science is dependent upon whether or not they are encouraged to be creative and innovatory. Job satisfaction was also strongly linked to a good reputation and it is argued that this confirms the importance of an innovatory climate for R&D scientists. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Creativity and Innovation Management Wiley

Abstract

This paper details a study of over 400 R&D scientists in 10 technology‐based organisations. There were two objectives, first, to establish whether employees differentiated between organisation according to their reputations for a commitment to scientific research. Secondly, to identify the factors which ‘determined’ a good or bad reputation. The results indicate that an innovatory climate is the main determinant of an R&D Department's reputation. That is, the extent to which R&D employees believe their organisation is a good place in which to practice science is dependent upon whether or not they are encouraged to be creative and innovatory. Job satisfaction was also strongly linked to a good reputation and it is argued that this confirms the importance of an innovatory climate for R&D scientists.
