Article Summary: 

In a recent interview, Michael O’Malley, Managing Director at Pearl Meyer, spoke about the importance of life satisfaction over job satisfaction in the workplace. Companies need to make it their purpose to improve the lives of their employees, creating a culture of caring. It is not just about setting behavioral expectations and having norms, but also about demonstrating values through actions. Companies should measure life satisfaction instead of just job satisfaction to achieve better work-life integration. O'Malley suggests creating environments of appreciation and gratitude, fostering benevolence in the workplace, and building a sense of community in which people can get to know each other on a personal level.
