Team Performance

59% of employees are not engaged (aka quiet quitting) and costing the global economy $8.8 trillion.

If we understand the drivers of motivation and engagement we can influence performance. Address this correctly and you can improve well-being, resilience, productivity, and profit.

Engagement is driven by recognition and reward.

Motivation can range from extrinsic to intrinsic  and relies on meeting our higher psychological needs.

Creating a meaningful culture is about fulfilling the deep human needs of recognition, relatedness, competence, autonomy, purpose and value contribution. This leads to positive health outcomes in employees, from situations (workload, stress, challenges, etc.) that would normally produce negative health outcomes like stress, anxiety, depression, or burnout.

There is a clear difference in motivation, desire, drive, and stress tolerance when our higher semantic needs are satisfied.

Get this right and you can help your company become a better place to work and tap the enormous business potential of a purposeful workforce aligned with a value-driven organization.

Enhances productivity

Purposefully engaged employees are more productive


People who live their purpose at work are more productive than people who don’t. They are also healthier, more resilient, and more likely to stay at the company. Moreover, when employees feel that their purpose is aligned with the organization’s purpose, the benefits expand to include stronger employee engagement, heightened loyalty, and a greater willingness to recommend the company to others.

Improves health


Purpose reduce burnout and increase well-being


Dr Iain McGilchrist says that “People who report being happy but have little or no sense of meaning, have the same gene expression patterns as people who are enduring chronic adversity like loneliness, bereavement or poverty” Further research suggests that higher levels of meaning, and purpose may work as prevention against depression, stress, and burnout.

Motivates Employees


Purpose attracts and retains talent


Daniel Pink found that “the most deeply motivated people—not to mention those who are most productive and satisfied—hitch their desires to a cause larger than themselves.”  Among Millennials and Gen Z, that quest is more important than ever.  In fact, “deeper purpose” is now the second-most important factor when considering a new job.

Orients Leadership


High-performing teams have a clear purpose

As Peter Drucker remarks, “The most successful company is not the one with the most brains, but the most brains acting in concert.” Nothing galvanises a leadership team like a shared intention. 73% of executives whose teams have a well-integrated purpose, says it helps them steer through marketplace turmoil.






Drives growth

Fulfilled employees deliver higher output


When employees feel that their purpose is fulfilled by their work, the work and life outcomes they report are anywhere from two to five times higher than their unfulfilled peers. In other words, organizations should aspire to ensure that their employees’ purpose is fulfilled at work.
