Task Significance with Adam Grant by Mark Adam
I learned about the concept Task Significance. Task Significance is giving an opporotunity to an employee to do work that has a positive impact on the well being of other people. The person allows high social contribution of helping coworkers or other people. It is a benefit that helps othere people in the work place. An, example of this would be firefighters. Then I learned about Invisible Task Significance. It has a high task significance but they are disconnected from seeing the benefits the work has on other people. An example, automobile engineers, authors and jouranlists. The reason for task significance is to increase employee motivation for the employee that was not enthusiastic about their job. It increased the employees desire to work longer hours, and to do a job well done.
