Enhancing everyday working life through meaningfulness initiatives in the workplace

This study, led by Brighton Business School (University of Brighton), will pilot a short personal development programme with 20 to 25 employees in each participating organisation to find out if meaningfulness improves engagement, performance and well-being. The programme will involve a one-hour workshop followed by weekly (one hour) personal activities for four weeks. There will also be a control group that will have access to the materials later.

Focus groups and surveys will be conducted during and one month after the intervention. Participating organisations will receive a research report and feedback session. An event will be held for participating organisations and IES HR Network members.
