What Motivates Us at Work? 7 Fascinating Studies That Give Insights

Fierce Ideas (green lightbulb)



This week's Fierce Resource was first published on the TED blog and explores Dan Ariely's TED talk: What makes us feel good about our work?

What motivates us at work? 7 fascinating studies that give insights breaks apart Dan Ariely's fascinating TED talk which details seven studies about how we feel at work, what makes us happy, feel appreciated, and motivates us. He challenges commonly held beliefs about what drives people and where they gain the most satisfaction.

"When you look carefully at the way people work, he says, you find out there’s a lot more at play—and a lot more at stake—than money. In his talk, Ariely provides evidence that we are also driven by meaningful work, by others’ acknowledgement and by the amount of effort we’ve put in: the harder the task is, the prouder we are."
