Three pillars for a flourishing workplace

Three pillars for a flourishing workplace

Interesting report by Dr John McGurk, Head of CIPD Scotland.

“Three issues which point to how we can build well workplaces.

  1. The strain of work is down to job design, tasking, scheduling, and training and development.
  2. The lack of social support can be attributed to both the culture of an organisation and working environments that increase isolation, exploitation and threat.
  3. The issue of energy, enthusiasm and pride is down to engagement, and that goes beyond distributing surveys to creating a fundamental sense of purpose for individuals.

These are three issues in which people and development professionals can, and must, intervene.”
