Faith in the workplace
I've just spent two hours in the Surfin Cafe thinking about my forthcoming contribution to the CMI Faith in the workplace forum. There has been a lot in the press in the last few days about people's desire to find meaning at work. Many people of faith who I have met see their work in corporates as their vocation. There is a tension between what organisations will allow - for political correctness - and what people want. I heard of a corporate this week which won't allow any mention of Christmas in case it offends people who don't have a Christian faith. But if people work more effectively when they find meaning and purpose, isn't it in the employers interest to encourage that? The pay off is huge.
