The intersection between HR strategy and HR technology

Work

Work, we know, is both a burden and a need, both a curse and a blessing… Work is an extension of personality. It is achievement. It is one of the ways in which a person defines himself or herself, measures his worth, and his humanity. 1

So ending the “Three Weeks of Drucker” we have this wonderful quote on “work.” Within it, Drucker defines not only the meaning of engagement and productivity, but he does it from the employee point of view. If we could get all our employees to see their work in this way, there is no possibility of failure.
