I have often wondered how businesses can work for employing and keeping creative workers, to get the most value out of it. This article, Written by Richard Florida,says something about what that kind of employees can be worth for the companies and the world ecomony. http://www.citylab.com/work/2013/09/real-reason-creative-workers-are-good-economy/6804/ The Real Reason Creative Workers Are Good for the Economy A new study shows that creative class workers spur innovation, no m
