Employees are vastly more satisfied and productive when four of their core needs are met:
1. physical, through opportunities to regularly renew and recharge at work
2. emotional, by feeling valued and appreciated for their contributions
3. mental, when they have the opportunity to focus in an absorbed way on their most important tasks and define when and where they get their work done
4. spiritual, by doing more of what they do best and enjoy most, and by feeling connected to a higher purpose at work.
