According to Adam Grant, task significance has a huge influence on productivity and motivation. I would agree that when anyone can see the result of their work and the positive effects it has, they are guaranteed to work harder. I've noticed that among the companies I worked for, some were very good at stressing task significance while others just focused on production, numbers, and sales goals. Almost every time the company that showed us how and who and what we were affecting by doing a good job was more successful. Whereas morale in the numbers focused environment always seemed to fail and usually their production wasn't as high. I like the concept of using stories to motivate like the "Volvo Saved My Life" testimonies. Connecting the workers with the receivers of their services seems like a genius idea to me.
