The Search for Meaning and Purpose in Business
- A book that addresses important questions for the future of corporations. Can a company be a source of meaning? How can we transform lousy jobs into fulfilling jobs? Is it worthwhile for a company to invest in personal purpose?
All of us – employers, employees and consumers – yearn for purpose in our lives and our work. The key question this book addresses is how companies can support and promote purposefulness in the workplace. With methodical precision, the author explores a new vision for purposeful work, which hinges on a check-in of the what, the who, and the why of organisations. Based on extensive research, this book offers a number of building blocks that can help companies to maximize their purposeful capital.
