We all face ups and downs at work – but we all want far more good
days than bad.
In the war for talent, offering engaging work
gives you a competitive edge. We wanted more insight into how much
of one it can really be. So, we took on a study to explore the
importance of meaningful work for Canadian office workers.
Unsurprisingly, most Canadian office workers crave meaningful
work. In fact, 81 per cent say they need most of their job to be
meaningful. Unfortunately, nearly 60 per cent also say they wish
their work were more meaningful.
That’s probably because many
workers are spending a lot of their time – about 15 hours a week –
on menial tasks, from fixing IT issues to coordinating meeting
Clearly, there’s a big opportunity for Canadian
organizations to better support their teams in the quest for
meaningful work. Our survey findings reveal that employees are
expecting that support, too.
From how menial tasks make
office workers feel to where money fits in, check out the key
findings for yourself.
