Make Your Work More Meaningful

Make Your Work More Meaningful | Meaning and enterprise | Scoop.it
Great managers know how to infuse work with meaning. But why wait for them to do it?
Frédéric Rochet's insight:

"Everyone can use to make their work more meaningful, regardless of company, industry, or occupation. The key is to link your personal values and motivations to the work you perform...

as you interact with hiring managers and supervisors, keep making it clear that you want meaningful work. But at the same time, do what you can to make the work meaningful."

 

I do agree but time has come to experiment a management funded on  meaning at all the levels of a company. Meaning is the mission of all !

Social First – Business Second….. | Social Theorem | Meaning and enterprise | Scoop.it

"I had an interesting conversation with a colleague who was attempting to socialize a standard business process.  We batted around the idea of whether the process was even needed in the first place and then starting tackling the central issue.  The company wanted to apply a social component (like gamification) in a culture that was process driven.  I’m sure you are familiar with the type – conservative, hierarchical, command and control…

I explained that social should be thought through first. "

Frédéric Rochet's insight:

"My belief is that businesses need to think more about retaining and nurturing employees than focusing on processes and departments"

Innovating for Shared Value: -Harvard Business REview

Business at its best: innovating to meet society’s needs and build a profitable enterprise. In “Creating Shared Value” (HBR January–February 2011), our FSG colleagues Michael Porter and Mark Kramer argue that achieving those twin goals represents the next competitive frontier for companies.

Frédéric Rochet's insight:

 

"At its best, business is about innovating to meet society’s needs and to build a profitable enterprise. But many corporate leaders are struggling to achieve those twin goals. In a study of more than 30 companies that have succeeded in creating so-called shared value, the authors identified five mutually reinforcing elements.

Embedding a social purpose. This may involve reemphasizing a firm’s founding mission, as Danone’s CEO did in 2000 to refocus the company on its origins as a manufacturer of healthy food.

Defining the need. Some firms conduct extensive research to develop a comprehensive view of the social problem. Before launching a micronutrient-reinforced spice product for low-income consumers in India, Nestlé studied nutritional deficiencies in the country and visited 1,500 households to understand cooking customs and diets.

Measuring shared value. To monitor an initiative in Brazil to increase the employability of youth, Coca-Cola spent months planning how to achieve business and social goals and then established intermediate measures to track progress.

Creating the optimal innovation structure. The right structure for a social enterprise depends on whether the firm already has a clear social purpose, understands the targeted problems, is able to solve them, and builds a strong business case for doing so.

Co-creating with external stakeholders. Effective social innovators enlist external stakeholders in their efforts to understand social needs and to execute their strategies."

Now here is an interesting article showing how branding is continually evolving into meaningful interactions with customers.


I curated this article -- not only because it shows us what is happening today and tomorrow with branding -- but because business storytelling is the link. Effective compelling meaningful storytelling is how to make this future possible.


Well, I think it is a desirable future to aspire to. Others might disagree. That's okay. And if you, your business, your organization desire to connect with customers who focus on creating a meaningful life well lived then pay attention to this article. It has lots of great insights.


Storytelling is a very powerful meaning-making medium. The stories you select to share -- and evoke from others -- will either help the business and customers create more meaning or not, depending on your intention and your ability to craft and deliver great content.


The choice is yours -- check out this picture of the future.

High Paying, Low Meaning Jobs - Business Insider | Meaning and enterprise | Scoop.it
Does your job make the world a better place? PayScale reveals how workers answered that question and how that statistic correlates to salary and job meaning.
Frédéric Rochet's insight:

For these "low meaning" jobs, there isn't much that  employers can do to increase the meaning behind their employees work because  this value is "driven by society."

"That being said, if workers are struggling with the  low job meaning in their current role, employers might be able to offer other  outlets for job meaning, such as corporate sponsored volunteer work.
