More than ever companies value engaged associates. This means that organizations must allow for space and realizations that explain how people connect with each other and their work. What makes them happy? What helps inspire creativity? How do they learn best–(Somewhat Question 3 on Gallup’s Engagement Survey)?
The TED Talk given by a 13 year old student details the one common desire we as humans aspire to regardless of our countless differences–and it is happiness. In his TED talk he shares his educational journey to arrive at driving happiness while fulfilling a new found affinity for learning– which is no longer a chore when introduced in the right setting. Could this be established in the work place? Besides just at places like Google?
You would assume that striving to create the perfect climate for employees to succeed, would be a strategy for most organizations. But how an organization establishes a culture driven by transparency and a healthy feedback loop to create holistically satisfied productive associates makes all the difference in levels of employee engagement, and in the end–the bottom line.
