Hi Justin, I was lucky enough to be seconded to a charity for eighteen months (paid) and one of the lessons that I learnt was that the people that worked there did so in the main because they were intensely passionate about making that difference to their target group. For a corporate entity that passion and connection with the aims of the organisation is gold-dust "employee engagement" programmes are perpetually being invented to try and capture that essence but rarely achieve that kind of result as they are not capable of creating the emotional contract between the organisations values and the individual's value set. In other words they just don't care enough to go that extra mile, even for the rewards that they are provided. The organisation that can provide the sustained belief within its people that they are creating value in a principled manner becomes less of a place to work, more of a place to be.
