The investment a company makes has changed.
Work used to be that place you went, clocked in, focused, clocked out and went home.
Work was where you did something and were paid for it.
Home was the place where you received everything else. Safety, care, security, food, love support and connection.
This is how it used to be.
Fast forward to now and things have changed dramatically.
Where work – or the office – was once the place where you achieved tasks in exchange for money, it’s now a completely different ballgame.
You are now not only my employer. But you’re the provider of purpose and a community. You give me a sense of belonging. I make my meaningful connections here and find part of my identity here. You’re my psychologist, confidante and friend.
The office now does the job that an entire village used to do.
Our expectations are forever changed.
Both of the office and of ourselves.
We no longer simply work in exchange for money.
We now want purpose. Belonging. Connection. Comradery … all in the same place.
What does that mean for the leaders in business who know all this, but don’t quite know how to bring it about?
A sense of purpose can come from the vision your business wants to achieve. But how do you cultivate connection and a sense of belonging in a group of people that seem to only have your business in common.
To answer these questions and more, we (Olivier and I) turned to Jacob Morgan.
