By responding to recent calls to incorporate a more sustainable and focused view on the developmental aspects of creativity, this paper examines a problem of human creativity at work within the realm of strategic Human Resource Development (HRD) literature. It incorporates a narrower focus on a facilitation HRD perspective and the opportunities it can bring to unleash and develop the untapped creative expertise. The paper adopts a mixed method research design, demonstrating a more inclusive approach to the challenge of human creativity at work. By encouraging participants to complete an online multifaceted assessment tool and engage in creative HRD workshops, the study aims to investigate changes in individual creative behaviour. The preliminary findings indicate a relationship between HRD and individual levels of creativity, suggesting that HRD interventions can be used to initiate creativity-related cognitive processes and more creative behaviours.
