Spiritualitas Tempat Kerja (Kerja Cerdas, Keras dan Ikhlas)

cover depan buku spiritualitas tempat kerja

Kajian dalam buku ini diawali dengan fenomena yang akhir-akhir ini muncul, yakni kerja berbasis finger print (sidik jari). Model ini berkembang tidak hanya di dunia industri tetapi juga bagi ASN (Aparat Sipil Negara)/Pagawa Negeri Sipil (PNS). Workplace Spirituality bukan hanya hal yang terkait dengan hubungan manusia dengan Tuhan, tetapi nilai spiritualitas itulah yang melandasi orang bekerja. Dalam konteks bekerja orang seringkali kehilangan maknanya selain hanya mendapatkan uang (money) dan keuntungan, maka penting sekali bagi seorang pekerja menemukan makna hidup yang hakiki dari pekerjaannya itu, sehingga muncul sikap senang, bahagia, jujur, disiplin dan bertanggung jawab. Maka bekerja itu harus jujur, ikhlas sebagai perwujudan dari spiritualitas yg ada dalam dirinya.

Standar Kompetensi Lulusan (SKL) dalam pendidikan merupakan standar menjadi dasar pengembangan standar lain seperti standar isi, proses, penilaian. Hal ini seringkali dibagikan oleh lembaga pendidikan, tidak terkecuali dengan perguruan tinggi.

Perguruan tinggi harus tau bagaimana visi, misi dan learning outcome dari lulusannya, sebab itu SKL perlu dirancang sedemikian rupa, tidak cukup dengan hanya copy pasti dari lembaga lain, tetapi perlu berangkat dari intake (analisis terhadap inputnya) sendiri, sehingga lulusannya dapat memiliki kompetensi sesuai dengan kurikulum dan proses pembelajaran yang dilakukan.
