The entrepreneurial employee in public and private sector
Title: The entrepreneurial employee in public and private sector
Type of Resource: Report
Short Description: The report offers new clarity in an under-researched but important and promising area. What entrepreneurial employees do is that they exercise their deeply personal agency to create something novel of value for others. They learn experientially what value different creations have for others. Employees who do this over time develop their entrepreneurial competences. Why they do this is because it benefits their organisation and themselves. They contribute to overall efficiency, to future-proofing the organisation, and to building a more engaging organisational culture. In return, they get a more meaningful inner work life, higher autonomy, more recognition and a boosted career trajectory. How to become more entrepreneurial is described through four focus areas; agency, novelty, value for others and learning.
