As lines between social issues and business blur, companies feel pressure to go beyond a basic standard of “doing well by doing good” to explicitly making positive contributions to society. Purpose in business is a growing trend that might actually shift our way of thinking about employee engagement. This MSLOC Capstone project by Alison Alexander (MSLOC, December 2015) explores the definition of purpose in business, its characteristics or attributes, and the possible correlation between meaningfulness at work and corporate social responsibility. Results indicate that purpose-driven organizations impact employees’ sense of meaningfulness at work and have employees who are more engaged, affectively committed, and intrinsically motivated.
Dozens of students, alumni, and faculty attended MSLOC's Meetup Mixer on May 20, 2016 at the downtown Northwestern campus. This annual curated networking event celebrates the alums who generously share their expertise with current students through the Meetup program.
