The idea that I have is based on the fact that almost every work environment has some kind of hierarchy. Hierarchies can result in people not taking the time to learn about what people in differently ranked positions do. As a result, it's easy for employees in lower ranked positions to not feel as though they matter to the overall workplace and organization's mission. In addition, it's easy to underestimate and not appreciate what other people do if you are minimally exposed to them. Perhaps a solution would be a workplace wide meeting every so often in which all the different employees would get together and meet each other. The purpose would be to ensure that everybody understands what other people do and how it relates to their own job. The meeting could be fun and more of a party by, for example, including food. Such an event would need to be catered to the specific type of job, number of people employed, and overall mission. For example, in a large workplace there could fewer large events, or more frequent smaller events within specific departments. Feeling connected socially would be beneficial in general, but also would help people see the overall product and purpose of their position within the larger picture. In addition, it would force people who have more senior positions to understand and appreciate how people in positions under them build into the overall product of the organization.
