::: 28/04 - The "NewWork Forum: Working for the Future" is organized in parallel to the Produrable exhibition, on 27, 28 and 29 April 2020. A master class will be held on Tuesday, April 28th, from 9:00 to 10:30 am, on the theme "The Work of the Future". Working in 2020: meaning or nothing! »
What is there in common today between the CEO of a large company, a startup, an SME or a student? The same quest for meaning in what he leads or undertakes.
Every day, articles, surveys, and analyses address the subject. Yesterday, it was the Figaro Etudiant which headlined "More than one in two young people could accept a job that pays badly if it makes sense". A little earlier, L'Usine Nouvelle asked a senior executive in industry this question: "Can the meaning of work still exist in major projects? »
But make no mistake, this new trend is not the result of a whim, or a craze for a world of teddy bear or everyone would be handsome and nice .... No, it is an alignment of values, a form of reconciliation between skills and appetites, which aims to align one's personal interest with the general interest.
What happens at the level of the Company and its reason for Being, is verified at the level of the Individual. The personal raison d'être joins the raison d'être of the company, an alignment of the planets in a way that we would call meaning?
