Encouraging a Sense of Purpose in the Workplace and Creating Company Culture
More and more studies are showing that stress in the workplace is on the rise and not just because of the workload, but even more so because of boredom and meaninglessness. There is almost a one to one correlation between people feeling proud of where they work and levels of employee engagement and commitment.
Where do you get your sense of purpose from? Maybe it’s the work itself, or the challenge that it brings. Maybe it’s the fact that you’re able to help others. Or, maybe it comes from a sense of community with your colleagues. The truth is, it could be a combination of all of those factors. No matter what you do, your job exists for a reason. When you know that reason – and when you fully understand how your efforts make the world a better place for someone else – you have found your job’s purpose.
Many companies emphasize the importance of the team having a common sense of purpose. But how does a company actually make that happen? It all begins with leadership and a company’s mission. Even the most confident individual can feel disempowered if there isn’t a focus on company culture or the company’s mission doesn’t have a clear purpose, and how each person is connected to that purpose.
On an individual level, people who understand their job’s wider purpose are happier, more engaged, and more creative. And, from an organizational perspective, when employees see how their roles fit with the company’s goals, staff turnover goes down and productivity rises. People work harder, use their initiative, and make sensible decisions about their work. In turn, the company can operate more efficiently. Everyone, from the CEO to customers, feels the positive effects.
Fostering a culture of purpose and keep the customer happy that makes a team of fulfilled employees. And when we make others happy, our lives are rich with purpose. The Mission is to create a family atmosphere where every employee is not only allowed but encouraged to have fun and bring their own sense of style and contribution to the workplace.
