Session Descriptions

Your employees need something unexpected: Purpose
If your business is like most, 75% of your employees underperform — even if you pay well, provide good benefits and manage superbly. What’s missing? Research finds they lack a sense of meaning. Fortunately, there is a solution: Expanding the social impact of their everyday work, or “job purposing.” Offering employees the opportunity to serve a societal cause as an integrated part of their workday can boost their engagement, productivity and wellbeing. Learn how innovative managers at FedEx, HP and elsewhere purpose the jobs of their team members. Leave with innovative actionable ideas to make work meaningful and make a positive social impact.

Does your job do little for the world? Fix it.
Provided you’re willing to be a tad rebellious, you can alleviate global warming, bring hope to terminally ill children or otherwise supported a societal cause from your existing job. Whether you work in accounting, technology or elsewhere, you can apply the practice of “job purposing” to integrate societal good into your workday. Come learn how!

Purpose or Pub
