People around the world have engaged in entrenched traditions of belonging and becoming for millennia. Today, however, our traditional communities, villages, and tribes have, for the most part, dissolved into sprawling suburbia and impersonal city living. Consequently, we now look to our organizations for belonging, meaning, and connection. We identify less with whom we come from, and more with where we work. Our identity (Dutton, Roberts, & Bednar, 2010) and frameworks for moralization (Fehr, Kai Chi, & Dang, 2015) are increasingly tied to our organizations of employ. In essence, our workplaces have become our poleis.
