Many of us work in a traditional organizational setting, while others work in homes, classrooms, manufacturing, or outdoors.
No matter where we spend our time, at a basic level, we need something to do - and ideally something to look forward to. Career & Purpose Well-being is about liking what you do every day.
The Career and Purpose Committee is one of five teams created in response to the Gallup Well-Being Survey. As you can imagine— some members of our community are thriving while others are struggling (see the full results here). Each committee is focusing on their own project to enhance well-being in their corresponding area.
The Gallup Survey measured responses to the following statements regarding career well-being:·
· There is a leader in your life who makes you enthusiastic about the future
· In the past 12 months you have reached most of your goals
· You like what you do every day
· You learn, or do something interesting, every day
Based on the responses of people surveyed:
36% Were Thriving
51% Were Struggling
12% Were Suffering
The Career Purpose Well-being Committee is creating a Coaching and mentoring program to achieve greater career satisfaction and positive life purpose.
The committee hopes to see a 10-point increase by the year 2026 in the Gallup survey.
In order to best serve the needs of the community, an open house was hosted to get community feedback regarding the potential curriculum categories the program could offer. Feel free to review the results and provide your own feedback below!
