As technology continues to evolve thus changing dynamics within the work front, we are seeing more employees searching for more meaningful tasks in their work and choosing to do work that directly impacts how they view their lives. This session will focus on how IOPs, Psychometrists and Human Capital professionals can equip themselves and their organizations to create organizational cultures which embrace employees as ‘whole human beings’ and not just ‘employees’.

‘’If the search for meaning in life is an important psychological motivation, it should be important to human welfare. We know with certainty that the presence of meaning in life is related to more well-being in relationships, work, and life in general, as well as to less psychological distress’’..
