Product description

Work is a huge and important part of our lives and has a meaning that goes much deeper than day-to-day activity or concerns about turnover and profitability. This book calls for new thinking about how and why we work, exploring how to find meaning in work and how to make work meaningful, and what this means for leaders and managers in the business community. To understand the meaning of work we need to explore how we work, what we hope for, what we believe, the values we bring to work, how we relate to others, and how we perceive the purpose of goods and services, achievement and success. This book will help both employers and employees to identify what really matters, and to achieve a greater sense of commitment, satisfaction, fulfillment, happiness and purpose in the workplace.
