The Role of Purpose in Your Business
By creating a sense of purpose or a shared goal in your organisation, you are helping to create a sense of belonging. If everyone is working towards that shared goal, then there is clear motivation, and your employees will be more engaged.
The Benefits of Purpose
Having more engaged employees through creating a sense of purpose means you a more likely to keep hold on your staff for longer. Engaged employees will also be more productive meaning your business will see improved growth. Ensuring your company has a sense of purpose will encourage your teams to find their own sense of purpose which can help with them with their work and personal life.
Having a clear purpose can also help you attract the best talent as candidates are attracted to companies who have a clear mission and values.
How To Create Purpose
Clearly there are several benefits of focusing on purpose in your organisation but how exactly can you help your employees find that sense of purpose? Firstly, you need to ensure that the company has a clear purpose. Consider your overall company values and what your targets and goals are. These don’t have to be financial targets but think about the wider impact your business has on society.
