Driving Employee Purpose By Design
Five ways a high-achieving workplace design can unlock collective sense of purpose
As human beings, we are hard-wired to crave meaning. Without a sense of purpose, we become vulnerable to boredom, anxiety, and even depression—which, at work, can diminish our enthusiasm and soften our focus.

We can adopt organizational culture and goals as our own, feeding shared success with new ideas and more productive time spent.
