Charlie Simpson: Towards Meaningful Work

Host Organization: Humans of Purpose


Humans of Purpose has featured some incredible Humans doing meaningful and purpose-driven work across the business, social enterprise, community, philanthropic and government sectors.

A common theme has emerged from our guests and listeners - the pursuit of purpose-driven and meaningful work.

But how do we pursue meaningful work as people and design for meaningful work as organisations? What are the conditions that will enable us to flourish at work?

Live podcast

Join Mike Davis, with special guest Charlie Simson for an exclusive Humans of Purpose Live Podcast event as they discuss these important questions and unearth the practical strategies to help us move towards meaningful work.

What to expect

Charlie Simson

Charlie is Head of Flourishing at Bellroy (still the best job title we have ever heard of), with a portfolio that overlooks hiring, development, and most importantly personal growth.

Her work is centered on creating organisations and systems that support and enable people to feel great and perform at their best, best described in her own words:

“Flourishing means feeling well, doing well and contributing to doing good. In other words, we strive to make sure that working at Bellroy enriches the lives of our staff and supports them tobe happy, resilient, connected, productive and to have a meaningful impact on the world.”

She brings over 10 years of experience from education policy and a Masters of Applied Positive Psychology, and is an expert at translating research evidence into practical policy solutions.

She is a former Humans of Purpose guest (check out her episode here), has been a speaker at The Purpose Conference 2018, NewCo Melbourne 2017, and many more interesting events! You can read more about Charlie on her recent feature on The Cool Career.
