HR Happy Hour - Episode 49 - 'The Why of Work' Thursday June 10, 2010 - 8PM EDT Why do we work? Is it just for the pay check, to get the bills paid and keep the lights on? Or is there more to it, like a search for meaning, community, or engagement in a cause that is important or meaningful? In their new book 'The Why of Work', Dave Ulrich and Wendy Ulrich describe that through our work we seek a sense of purpose and meaning, and that by tapping into that meaning we can enjoy more successful and positive workplaces, more engaged workforces, and more successful organizations. How can leaders strive to create more abundant organizations, that are better connected to the needs of customers, employees, shareholders, and communities while providing employees more opportunity to find their true motivation and get more connected to the work, to each other, and to the organization. Dave Ulrich, Professor of Business at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, and c-founder of the RBL Group will be our special guest on the HR Happy Hour to talk about The Why of Work, finding and creating meaning in the workplace, and the ideas behind the abundant organization. It should be a great show, and I hope you can join us.
