10 Steps to Fulfilment at Work

A Blueprint for Better Business believes there is unrealised potential within the UK workforce; manifested as low productivity, lack of engagement and unfulfilled people.

From an individual’s perspective, feeling unfulfilled is demoralising and can affect both mental health and job performance: issues which are relevant for organisational success too. Our ’10 Steps to Fulfilment at Work’ campaign lists ten simple and practical steps which anyone can take, to help feel more engaged and motivated during the day-to-day.

The steps are derived from the Blueprint Principles & Framework and are supported by a number of senior business leaders and experts in management, psychology, sustainability & consultancy. Please see below for links to the published content.
