Designing A Meaningful Workplace | LeadeRS/MANAGERS

Research finds that employees experience meaningfulness when they (1) feel they are significant, (2) can see the human impact of the work, and (3) benefit in all aspects of their lives from their work. This session provides case studies and key strategies for building a meaningful workplace.


This session is ideal for employees at any level of the organization. Research and case studies have found that people can “craft” even the most mundane tasks in their work as profoundly meaningful. This session inspires, empowers, and compels people to begin crafting work as meaningful to feel more engaged, satisfied, and to increase performance.

Zach also customizes topics for many different organizational types.
