The Rise Of The Purpose-Led CareerMay 02, 2023
New Value: Someone apparently asked ChatGPT, what are the careers you will not be able to replace in the future and why? The common theme was that it was careers that involve creativity and care. Because those were the two human qualities it thought a machine could never reproduce. At the same time, we are being asked to look at how our careers need to evolve to meet the climate and sustainability challenge. To shift and build to a new system based on genuine flourishing together - that serves people, planet and prosperity. Which is also going to require huge care and creativity.
New Foundations: Whether we like it or not, the new economy is now being built. And it is integrating for profit and for impact which means a massive transition. The shifts that we are called to make are huge. What we are doing here is transforming the very foundations of how we do business. And so what that means is that each person in the organisation needs to look at how they fit into that. Everybody needs to be engaged. It needs to be everyone's problem. With all of us rising together to the challenge.
New Purpose: In parallel, we also have employees that are at pivotal moments themselves. Seeing the state of the world and actively feeling increasingly out of synch with, unmotivated in and uninspired by business as usual. More and more searching for fulfilment, meaning and positive impact in what they do. Even considering leaving to have more of a positive impact elsewhere. A 2022 report by PWC showed that 75% of workers want to work for an organisation that contributes positively to society.
