The 3 Layers of Meaningful Work | Make Work Meaningful by Jesper Outzen | Scoop.it

About Make Work Meaningful

About Make Work Meaningful | Make Work Meaningful by Jesper Outzen | Scoop.it

II believe in a future where the majority of people can see the meaning of their work.

 

The purpose of this site - Make Work Meaningful - is to inspire you to do just that.

 

 

Your Challenge

Many employees are disengaged at work, growth possibilities are automatically reduced or even worse non-existent and the situation may consequently lead to national or even global economy problems. This is one of the primary reasons why companies need to pay much more attention to finding the meaning at work, both for themselves and the employees, and thereby increasing the number of actively engaged employees.

 

I conclude that three steps are essential when a leader wants to create a meaningful work environment:

 

  1. self discovery
  2. finding flow at work 
  3. leadership

 

When these three steps are connected they create a solid path in the meaning making proces and a foundation for a new business model.
