CONNECT YOUR TRUE LIFE MEANING TO YOUR DAILY LIFE WORK
Many professional development trainings seek to give employees new skills, but don't really talk much about the employee's experience during their daily life at work. "Connect Your True Life Meaning to Your Daily Life Work" is a training offered by Lisa Reid that addresses the one thing that experts say is most important to employee happiness. That one thing is meaning.
This training uses experiential exercises to help employees see how what's important to them personally can be connected to the work they do on a daily basis. Studies on work happiness and meaning show that employees who rank themselves low on the happiness and meaning scale have a much higher chronic pro-inflammatory stress response, associated with heart disease and some cancers. And they have a much lower immune response to viruses, which are prevalent in a group setting such as work.
Companies usually know that happier employees are more productive, cost less in personnel turnovers and other HR actions, and just easier to be around. This study also shows that they can be healthier.
By teaching your employees to bring personal meaning into their work lives, they begin to reap positive outcomes for themselves and their companies.
