Explaining employee innovative behaviour: a test of an integrative model

Uri Sternberg, Aviv Shoham

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The ability to innovate is crucial to the success of any organisation and it largely depends on employees' innovative behaviour. Yet, despite an emerging literature on this topic, there remain important knowledge gaps, which this study seeks to fill. Our study examines innovative behaviour in two contexts: at home and in the workplace. For this purpose, we provide an integrated overview of innovative behaviour, including its antecedents and its effects. Findings help clarify the relationship between innovative behaviour in the two contexts, both in general and with respect to its drivers and consequences. The core finding is that consumer innovative behaviour precedes employee innovative behaviour. We discuss the theoretical and practical implications of the findings.
