Westervelt’s article describes how companies are searching for ways to generate purpose and passion in their employees to stop the increasing turnover rate in many jobs. Jane Dutton, professor of business administration and psychology at University of Michigan, focuses on the importance of relationships in positive organization. Dutton comments that, “If you have positive connections between employees, that means it’s also probably easier to cultivate meaning in the work they’re doing.” On the same note, “if employees feel they have a purpose, it’s easier for them to cultivate positive connections with each other.”
