Meaning at work

Meaning at work is a term that refers to people’s perception that their work matters and has a positive impact on others. Work can also be seen as meaningful if people see an opportunity to learn and grow in their work. Meaning at work is linked to job satisfaction, well-being, and retention. A famous example of meaning at work is the NASA janitor who explained that his job was to put a man on the moon. More mundane examples include people who might find meaning in helping their colleagues or contributing to their organization’s growth.
