Podcast - Task Significance: Interview with Adam Grant

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Marina Mackin (Student), Mar 26, 2011

Many corporations should learns from Adam  Grants' analysis "that people in high task significant jobs are usually more motivated and are happier at work."  With this information managers should incorporate ways to bring this to all their employees, especially the employees whose jobs do not have immediate impact on others. 

Managers should introduce the high task significance through Organization development, forming teams and giving incentives to their employees through raises or highlighting how the employees work has helped others.  This would be very motivating to workers whose jobs are more behind the scenes and do not feel directly how they have benefited many customers.
