Meaningful experiences at work contribute significantly to human flourishing. Experience-focused design approaches have been well developed for the entertainment contexts, but few of them address how to design for desirable experiences in the work contexts. We collaborated with heavy engineering companies and explored design methods in various projects that concentrated on enabling targeted experiences at work. Based on the research findings of this five-year academy and industry collaboration, we propose the experience goal-driven design approach for evoking meaningful experiences at work. This tutorial aims to share this approach with participants in a half-day workshop regarding what meaningful experiences at work are and the means to enabling them in the work contexts.
