What makes Meaningful Work unique?



It is based on world-first and Australian-first research that hasn’t yet been adopted into everyday language for the wider public.



Practical frameworks and activities, modelled on evidenced based research, are shared allowing you to identify what you might need to do differently to generate meaningful work.


Real Stories

Real-life inspiring examples of people who have found meaningful work, sharing their inflexion points and the sometimes-surprising paths they took to get there.


Future of Work

It shares the trends in the future of work, including demographics and artificial intelligence showing how understanding the factors of meaningful work will better prepare you for what is coming.

As a result of this research in 2021, Beaumont People released the Meaningful Work Profile Tool to allow individuals to measure what meaningful work was for them. Read more...
