Having a strong sense of purpose and meaning is becoming one of the most important factors affecting wellbeing and performance. Great Recruiters get this. They see the impact their work has on others. It’s personal. They feel a sense of purpose when they place a great candidate with a great client.
Having a strong sense of purpose and meaning has been shown to have significantly more bearing on our job satisfaction that almost all other known factors.
It doesn’t matter what line of work you are in. When you see the cause and effect of what you are doing you feel a sense of purpose. It is that sense of purpose that makes the difference. A sense of purpose is powerful. It inspires people to do great work.
Recruiters have to first believe that their work has a purpose before they can help candidates find their own meaning in work.
What do we want from life – for our lives to have a purpose? Doing things that we love, trying out new things and having a direction. Recruiters love this feeling. Finding the purpose behind a job vacancy makes finding the right person for the job 100% easier.
