Employees Want Purpose Driven Work

November 14, 2023

One of the many benefits of Truvelop is the messaging our Customer Success team sends to leaders and managers twice a month. Through Truvelop Tips, we share best practices, proactive recommendations, and quicks tips with end users on various topics. Here is an excerpt from the most recent Truvelop Tip: Employees Want Purpose Driven Work.

As we quickly approach the close of 2023, it’s important that we take a moment to reflect on all that has been achieved this past year. When done in a meaningful way, reflection can be an incredibly impactful practice that can increase engagement, confidence, and feelings of commitment. As a manager, how will you be renewing your team’s commitment heading into 2024? How will you be bringing purpose and meaning to their work?

Everyone wants to feel valued and that their work matters. They want to feel like they’re making an impact. As a Manager, you can set the tone and highlight just how important your team’s work is. You can also open a collaborative conversation that encourages the employee to identify what’s important to them and what they are most proud of when it comes to their work.

Looking for additional guidance? Try asking these 4 questions in your next 1:1 meeting:

  • What are you most proud of from this past year? Learn about their motivators and what inspires them to perform at their full potential.
  • Who has had the greatest positive impact on your experience in 2023? Explore their relationships and what they are interested in.
  • What are you looking forward to learning in 2024? Celebrate their curiosity and interest in development. Reinforce your support and investment in their growth.
  • How can I help? Leave the conversation feeling aligned and inspired.

By reflecting on learning takeaways now and identifying what’s next, you and your team can hit the ground running in 2024.
