About Meaningful Work
Are you seeking more meaningful work?
Have you been unfulfilled in a variety of jobs, organisations or careers and wondered why?
Are you looking for ways to make your current job more meaningful?
Or are you looking for work but are unclear how to get it right this time?
Meaningful Work will unlock your unique path to career fulfilment. This book will help you define what meaningful work is for you, distilling it down into three key messages you can reflect upon for your own career. Learn how to get to the heart of what is meaningful for you, and how to use this to find contentment in your current or future role.
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-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.
How did Meaningful Work come about?
In 2019 Beaumont People commissioned world-first research into meaningful work. An Australian-first because there had never been any research on what meaningful work meant for Australians, and a world-first because no-one had ever looked at both the psychological factors and the sociological factors of meaningful work.
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...
