Meaning Matters

In a recent article in the Harvard Review of Business, researchers found that having work that had meaning for employees was critically important.

>The old labor contract between employer and employee — the simple exchange of money for labor — has expired. > >Taking its place is a new order in which people demand meaning from work, and in return give more deeply and freely to those organizations that provide it. > >They don’t merely hope for work to be meaningful, they expect it.

I guess we should not be surprised, then, when students feel the same way.
