Meaningful Work

June 15, 2020

There are three qualities that a work needs to have to be considered satisfying and meaningful by people engaged in it. They are autonomy, complexity, and a direct relation between effort and reward. The rewards need not be solely monetary but rather should correlate with the worker's notion of reward; what he/she deems a fair compensation for the effort put into the work.
