The Working World Desiderata

"You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

The Desiderata was originally written by Max Ehrmann, in 1927. This peace of artistic word art has over the years given inspiration and hope to many. People often need some words of hope and encouragement, to offer them value during adversity. Modern life exposes people to stress triggers and situations where one often needs to be reminded how valued one is, and what honourable contribution one has within the society they live in.

The original Desiderata is an inspiring reminder to strive for high ideals, and we at IconomySA have a business offering called Icon People, which adapts the principle of a ‘Working World Desiderata’. This business solution looks at recognising people and rewarding high ideals in the workplace.

Stress triggers that arise in the workplace, irrespective of the job function one holds, can often result in low morale, poor performance, and can significantly impact the behaviour of a person. The counter action to curb this possible issue directly, lies with understanding human behaviour, creating a methodology of honouring high ideals and from there create a fascination and attraction to your staff encouraging them to want to strive higher.

This concept re-wires beliefs and performance related actions towards being part of a winning team. The spirit born from this hype is greatly generated through communication, graphical display of company wide information and most importantly rewarding high performance, both individually and in teams.

Icon people has a sound method that we follow to understand the troubles faced between employers and employees, and ways that can bridge these difficulties. Our programmes facilitate a two-way conversation and has a way to encourage responsibility to be held on both sides, of this equation.

Your team is your task force and at IconomySA, though Icon People, we would like to work personally with you in creating your ‘Work World Desiderata’.

“Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.”


Work with us to create your ‘Work World Desiderata’.
