Grant's interview was both touching and significant in my personal opinion. His interview spoke volumes to any of us who have ever had a dead end job. He says that no one has ever done a study on task significance versus task monotony of workers in a call center. Many of us have had dead end jobs, like the example in the call center where we may have not seen the significance, however those call center employees were more significant to the university than perhaps the lifeguard at the university pool, although the public perception of those two jobs is entirely opposite. Grant also states that work performance would increase if the employees actually saw their work as significant and would take a pride in their job rather than just see their job as a way to pay bills. Employers that can give this knowledge to their employees stand to be better off than those employers that cannot.
