How many people find senses of purpose in their jobs? Unfortunately studies show that most do not. Their bodies may put in long hours, but their hearts and minds never punch in. And that's a terrible dilemma for organizations trying to motivate their workforces to do more with less.
Scott Mautz, author of Make It Matter, the new book published by AMACOM, wants your employees to feel like they matter when they go to work. Some of that has to come from within, but managers can also help guide employees to a sense of meaning in their work. Employees who feel taken care of and are assured that their time isn't being wasted will be happier and do more meaningful work.
