Online Video Course: Finding Meaning and Purpose in the Workplace Using Science



Series: Find Your Purpose


Written by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, Intentional Insights Co-Founder and President


__________________________________________________________


This video-based one-hour course will first evaluate the current sense of meaning and purpose among participants using a science-based questionnaire developed by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky. Next, it will provide an overview of the science on meaning and purpose, and how it applies in the workplace. It will then offer specific strategies to cultivate a rich sense of meaning and purpose in their workplace.


Research shows that a workplace that cultivates a sense of meaning and purpose benefits both employees and employers. Employees who experience a greater sense of meaning and purpose in their work context enjoy better health and well-being. They have a significant decrease in physical ailments including catastrophic ones such as strokes and heart attacks, and a lower incidence of mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. Consequently, they take many fewer sick days and have higher work capacity. As a result, employee work performance improves, and there is significantly less employee turnover.


Additionally, employees working with a sense of purpose experience a greater integration into their individual teams as well as the culture of the organization. Thus, employees show better teamwork, reduced team conflict, improved team communication, as well as becoming better organizational citizens and aligning with the higher-level goals of the organization.
