Do you feel like this?
Personally, I've been really lucky throughout my professional life to feel purpose-driven in my work. According to this research, I am part of the 30% minority who do. We can make work environments better, and this article suggests it starts with snacks and being giving a sh*t about people. I agree.
"The simplest way for companies to take on this challenge is to begin with a basic question: “What would make our employees feel more energized, better taken care of, more focused and more inspired?” It costs nothing, for example, to mandate that meetings run no longer than 90 minutes, or to set boundaries around when people are expected to answer email and how quickly they’re expected to respond. Other basic steps we’ve seen client companies take is to create fitness facilities and nap rooms, and to provide healthy, high-quality food free, or at subsidized prices, as many Silicon Valley companies now do."
