Employees who rate their job as “not very meaningful”. (1,600 respondents, Authentic-Happiness.com survey)
Now, this is feedback, to corporations, to leaders, to direct supervisors and to our “beloved” Human Resource department. With a more volatile, younger generation entering the job market, the challenge of defining meaningful job assignments will be even more acute and critical to building an experienced loyal workforce.
At the same time, only 27% believe that they spend enough time rate doing what they are passionate about. What if we could ignite some new passions and reconnect those with our daily work? What if learning and leadership was so engaging that employees would become over time true passionate experts in their field of work: this sounds like Utopia Inc. ! Maybe, but there is no doubt that getting closer to this goal would result in significant performance gains. Isn’t this the ultimate goal of the learning department?
