Feeling satisfaction and passion about work can make a big difference in the quality of life for employees, and higher productivity and retention for employers.


Do you love what you do? It can make all the difference in productivity and quality, according to a study.
 
Employees often spend more than 50% of their waking hours focused on work. Feeling satisfaction and passion about work can make a big difference in the quality of life for employees, and higher productivity and retention for employers. The Ken Blanchard Companies®, following up on their 2006 study, have redefined their “passion” framework while updating the analysis on what employees find most important and relevant to their overall enthusiasm, desire, and commitment to the organization.
 
From Engagement to Work Passion creates a new definition and terminology for Work Passion. Designed to encompass all employees, regardless of roles, Work Passion is defined by Blanchard as an individual’s persistent, emotionally positive, meaning-based state of well-being stemming from continuous, reoccurring cognitive and affective appraisals of various job and organizational situations, which results in consistent, constructive work intentions and behaviors. Researchers at Blanchard have determined that Work Passion is a crucial prerequisite for organizational vitality.
