Today purpose-driven employees seem to be in high demand. However, could doing the obvious job well be purposeful enough?

According to a recent article in the Economist, it is important to look beyond the vague term of a “meaningful job”. Research confirms that people are motivated by different things and that they also find purpose in different things. “Having a purpose does not necessarily mean a desire to found a startup, head up the career ladder or log into virtual Davos. Some people are fired up by the prospect of learning new skills or of deepening their expertise.”

“You want to make your culture into a magnet that pulls great employees in and retains them over time as the competition for those great employees is going through the roof.”
