Work Life Integration and Resilience Promote Fulfillment

Highly fulfilled employees are more engaged, stay longer and produce more, author Bill Schiemann recently told a group of Hawaii human resource management executives.

Enhancing work-life integration significantly contributes toward a sense of fulfillment, he says. Schiemann, following his ten-year collaboration with the Society for Human Resource Management Hawaii Chapter, trained nearly 50 HR executives in strategies to promote employee fulfillment – and promoted the executives’ sense of their own fulfillment too.

According to Schiemann, fulfillment starts with a personal assessment of one’s own goals.

  • Would I love to live this vision? 
  • Does it align with my core values?
  • Does it make me grow?

Years of research at Schiemann’s research organization, the Metrus Institute, indicate that personal and organizational success is made up of three factors: alignment, capabilities and engagement. Beyond simply viewing these factors through the workplace, Schiemann stresses the importance of integrating the following life sectors: career, relationships, education, leisure, spiritual/community and health. The ability to recover from and successfully face and handle life tasks in the presence of highly adverse circumstances, also known as resilience, is an essential quality to enhance fulfillment, he says.

Schiemann is the founder of the Metrus Institute and known for his pioneering work in the creation of the People Equity (ACE) talent optimization framework, strategic performance metrics and scorecards, organizational alignment, employee engagement/fulfillment and strategic employee surveys that link people to business strategy and drive high performance.
