When employees get up every morning without energy, walking to their work like zombie, their heads are quite heavy, it’s pointing straight down, and seeing everything in gray color. Then this is seriously the time to look for the root cause of this phenomenon in workplace, it may not only that the employees are suffering but maybe it’s whole corporate culture.

Perhaps after working in an organisation for certain period an employee will wonder why he’s here and where he is going, what is the meaning of his tasks, and what is the purpose of being in this orginasation, all these questions awaking in an employee’s mind will look to be fulfilled with answers and that will bring depression to the workplace.

One way to solve this tragedy is by revealing the organisation’s purpose to the employees, not by fantasy phrase written by unknown person on small sign board hung on the reception area or on the webpage, but to be a mission developed from within, make meaning to the employees existence in this organisation before any stockholders, it shall really reflect what the organisation is doing. In other words, what the employees are doing to reach the organisation’s vision and from there the employees need to feel their importance, like feeling where you are setting now, appreciating their contributions in achieving the origination’s objectives and sharing the profit with, as reward for those efforts, they want to feel the essence of working.
