Support creativity - Let it be known around the workplace that you as well as other management are in full support of any creative ideas or suggestions. You shouldn't let employees feel as though their ideas won't be taken into consideration.
One hand won't clap - You can provide employees with a space within the office where they can all gather together an brainstorm ideas. Encourage employees to gather together at least once a month with managers to discuss matters at hand e.g. new product line, how to improve a current company system etc.
Reward creativity - Rewards don't have to be financial! A "Best Employee of the Month" plaque can be a reward as well. Anything to let your employees know that they are doing well and that you appreciate their ideas or contribution.
Diversify your workforce - Don't be too "cookie cutter" in your hiring process. Choosing employees with a diverse background that each bring different experiences and perspectives to the table can help foster creativity which can generate great ideas.
