Q2 2015 Program Recap

By: PSPS Programming Committee

On May 12th, 2015, PSPS presented our quarterly program: "The Purpose Economy: How Your Desire for Impact, Personal Growth, and Community is Changing the World" with Arthur Woods, co-founder and COO of Imperative. The program had a wonderful turnout and the audience garnered useful information about motivating their workforce through purpose.

Arthur noted that we spend lots of time motivating employees with money and achievement (promotion, accolades, etc.). However, there is a large segment of the workforce which is motivated by purpose - the impact that they are having on the community, their organization, and their networks. Arthur shared research which supported the impact of connecting employees to their purpose and also described new research initiatives which Imperative will be conducting to validate their assessment for purpose drivers in the workplace. Overall, the event provided a wonderful opportunity to think "outside of the box" and to connect with peers in order to create effective ways of managing people in the 21st century.
