The EOFY is a time when financial performance tends to take precedence over everything else. For a few crazy weeks (or even months) it’s all about sales, revenue, expenses, budgets, share-price and maximising profit while minimising tax.
Even our most socially responsible companies can show signs of being driven by their pocket in the mad scramble to end the year on a financial high. It’s the time of year where rational financial imperatives can take over, leaving your people feeling emotionally and spiritually bereft and questioning why they turn up to work every day beyond a pay packet.
Now we’re at the beginning of a new financial year, perhaps it’s time to take a breather and explore how to rebalance the imperative of profit with the deep human need for your people to have purpose and meaning in their work?
So, how do you reorient your company and your people towards a higher purpose than profit?
