This report outlines the findings of a research project carried out by Roffey Park Institute during 2003 and incorporates findings from the 2004 Management Agenda survey, Roffey Park's annual investigation of employee perceptions of the workplace. This survey was completed by people in 735 organisations in 2004. The aim of the research was to investigate people's perceptions of 'meaning' especially with regard to the workplace, and explore what constitutes meaningful and meaning-less experiences. These issues are not well-grounded in much of the literature and research and we wanted to find out whether people experiencing a sense of meaning in the workplace would perform any differently from those who did not.
