Passionately Curious: How passion affects creativity in the context of supervisor support

In a sample of 400 employees working in 7 different large as well as moderately-sized manufacturing and engineering companies in and around Jamshedpur, India, I plugged a research gap recognized by creativity experts in the form of identifying a motivational mechanism other than intrinsic motivation that could affect creativity. As hypothesized, HP positively related to employee creativity, work engagement partially mediated this relationship in a supportive atmosphere. Same-source common method bias was reduced by employing dyadic data, both from the employees as well as their supervisors.
