A new report called “Meaning and Purpose at Work” was highlighted in a recent Harvard Business Review article. These researchers quantified the importance of meaningful work.
The challenge for employers is knowing how to make work more meaningful. The report authors had three recommendations.
The first suggestion, simply put, is to clarify how each person’s job fits the organization’s purpose and to build a caring team to support them in that effort.
The data reveals, a support system within the workplace, and employees feeling part of something bigger, builds a strong team.
Matthew 9:36 says, “Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.”
Shepherding your people with compassion and clarifying their meaning to your organization will reap great rewards!
