Leaders should aim to create an environment where staff feel they belong, they have autonomy, and that what they are doing has a purpose they care about, and then direct that energy towards the required tasks.
#belongingautonomypurpose is a socially and commercially smart concept aimed to improve the working world. It looks to improve the sense of belonging people have. When they feel they are truly valued and included as their whole, unique, diverse and authentic self, they do their best work. When people feel they have more autonomy over how, when and where they conduct their tasks, they are able to perform better. #workschoolhours has more details. Finally, people need to feel a sense of purpose, and believe that what they do matters. Creating workplaces that support #belongingautonomypurpose is better for staff and better for the organisation.

“Ellen was our speaker at Venture Taranaki’s International Women’s Day event 2022. The talk covered everything from personal stories to practical tips for how employers can attach and retain great female talent. Ellen was a relatable and engaging speaker to whom the audience responded well. If you want to open up a conversation on making the workplace great for everyone, Ellen is the woman to help you.”
“Every organisation should hear Ellen speak. She is so passionate about #workshoolhours and is able to articulate how organisations can solve some of their biggest (people) issues right now and carve out a major competitive advantage in the war for talent. As a parent it was reassuring to hear that so many other parents shared some of my experiences balancing work and family as I do. As an HR practitioner, this talk offered a fresh perspective on many of the issues we are facing right now, backed up by research and evidence that we can take back to our organisations to help solve our current challenges, improve our employee experience and shape the future of work.”
“Ellen spoke at our Managing Burnout and Fatigue in the Workplace Conference in Auckland. Managing burnout and supporting wellbeing is clearly a topic Ellen is passionate about as she ensured the day was as insightful as possible for our delegates and provided valuable, practical take-aways. We had great feedback from speakers, delegates and all the team onsite. It was a pleasure to work with Ellen and would be delighted to work together in the future.”
