Scientific Studies on Purpose
I am a psychology student at LSE and I am very passionate about the potential power of organizational purpose. Is anyone aware of any scientific studies/experiments that have been conducted on the effects of such abstract purpose on the individual employee (or other stakeholders)?
Also, if anyone wants to support my own research - I will soon conduct a study for my dissertation, focusing on the effects of purpose on employee satisfaction, engagement, and motivation...
Thanks in advance for your input!

Most career goals are still focused on climbing a broken corporate ladder. Linear career paths are still the norm. Yet we all know the world (of work) changes quickly. Let's say goodbye to traditional career paths and embrace a more fluid world.
"I'd rather get it wrong than not do it at all". These words started a powerful initiative within housing association United Welsh in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. They came from Lynda Sagona, the chief executive, and led to a deep and impactful series of words and deeds.
One of the common pieces of conversation prompted by the pandemic has been that “after this is over, everything is going to be different.” It sounds uplifting... though I’m not sure what people are imagining will have changed. While a crisis (personal or collective) can cause reflection, more often than not, when it’s over, things merely revert to being much the way they were before it happened.
