Why You Should Encourage Your Team to Have Side Projects
Cofounder and Executive Creative Director, Aaron Harvey, spoke with CNBC about the importance of encouraging your team to have side projects. “If at the end of the day you’re trying to cultivate leaders who are going to make change in your company,” Harvey tells CNBC, “it’s really important that you encourage them to find that inspiration, which in reality is going to come both inside and outside of the office.”
By supporting employees’ passion projects, you are giving them the freedom to explore themselves and the comfort and excitment of bringing that newfound knowledge back into the workplace.
