Whenever we go to a religious place or a spiritual center or a social service organization, we do come across a lot of volunteers who manage all the activities. What always amazed me was the fact that these volunteers are not only sincere, diligent, and dedicated but also go out of their way to serve.
Let's take a moment and compare them with employees or any commercial organization. You'll see that such sincerity and dedication is found in fewer people compared to the above category of organizations. The only other institution where you get to see such high levels of in-depth dedication and commitment is the Armed Forces.
Compared to those in the Armed Forces, the employees of these large commercial organizations draw better salaries, showered with a wide range of perks, and even get to work in luxurious workspaces. The volunteers, as the name suggests, don't get paid at all.
For the purposes of this discussion, I'll include the employees of the Armed Forces in the category of volunteers as a majority of those who join the forces don't join for money alone.
I don't mean to say that all the employees of commercial organizations lack dedication and sincerity but what I'm saying is that the depth of these traits is less when compared with the voluntary organizations.
Is there a trick that the commercial organizations are missing which the voluntary organizations are able to crack?
So, what should these commercial organizations do so that they can also cultivate such levels of dedication and sincerity?
These steps will go a long way in helping the organizations to ensure that their employees are aligned with them.
