entrepreneur The findings showed that Facebook lags behind the others in cultivating a culture of creativity Microsoft employees are more innovative than those at Apple “The study data tell us that in terms of adventurousness Microsoft employees tend to be neck-and-neck with Apple’s and much more adventurous than Google Facebook or IBM employees” Samar Birwadker Founder and CEO of Good&CO was quoted as saying to fastcompanycom on Friday As a result of being among the first social media platforms on the Internet Facebook may be considered among the most innovative companies in the world However its early successes have resulted in a more conservative effort to sustain them “They have (Facebook) always had that reputation [of being innovative] and I think that now becomes a subconscious thing that Facebook is innovative but the current place they are in as a business doesn’t require them to personally be innovative” Birwadker said “They (Facebook) invented social networks and there’s always been this layer of innovation” Birwadker explained adding “but with more pressure on revenue and especially on mobile and advertisements I think we are seeing a lot less risk taking and adventurousness by their employees” On the other hand Microsoft is often perceived as less innovative because the more established tech giant has lagged behind the growth of its competitors Microsoft has always made a lot of money doing things the right traditional organised way the study said Also Read:Sree Sreenivasan: I look at my job as chief listening officer of NewYork
