WORK SHOULD BE MEANINGFUL

We believe work should be life-enriching, not life-depleting.

The Wellbeing at Work research team explores the exciting and groundbreaking topic of what makes work an engaging and impactful experience, versus what makes work negative or discouraging. How can work feel purposeful and engaging, and at the same time enable us to flourish?

We strive to offer practical solutions and insights to enhance your professional wellbeing. To ensure our solutions are credible and sustainable, they must be based on rigorous research. We employ multiple research methodologies to better understand the conditions that foster or impede positive work experiences. We also examine how human beings evolve over the course of our work lifetimes, and the effects this evolution has on the experience of work.

The information on this site will raise your awareness, help you thrive and encourage you to live out the true purpose of your work.
