After listening to Mark Adam speak on Task Significance and it's importance to a companies reputatio, internally and externally, I have. I have come to an understanding of the difference each and every individual has on others. Working for a Hotel industry at the front desk can seem to be an everyday routine- answering the same questions, knowing the hotels layout, and checking in and out consistantly for 8 hours a day. My managers use the task significance strategy to movtivate myself and my colleagues. We all make a diiference even if we don't realize it. By showing someone who does not know where to go to dine and have a good time, I have made an impact on the individual who is asking as well as his/her perception of the city his/her is visiting. It is certainly a ripple effect, if low motivation and the mind set of "doing the same routine over and over again" is in effect then it will certainly show through the turn over % leading to high costs and a sour note on the company. By using concrete examples like Adam mentioned on real life stories of life guards saving people or Medtronics patients miracles one can certainly find a meaning for their purpose with the company and themselves. People want recognition and want to make a difference, by analyzing what they do and to whom it effects can increase their significance in their lives.
