WORK SHOULD BE MEANINGFUL

We believe work should be life-enriching.

The Wellbeing At Work research team explores the exciting and groundbreaking topic of what makes work engaging and impactful. The majority of people work for 40 years or more. Yet, little is known about how our work lives evolve over time.  

Our research surfaces from a multidimensional understanding of the conditions that foster, or impede, positive work experiences, and the ability to be content, and flourish, in the short term, and over our lifetimes.
