Researchers say happiness reveals more about human welfare than standard indicators like wealth, education, health, or good government.
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.
"So it’s no wonder many of us aren’t not happy—we’re drained and emotionally exhausted! Nearly half of us lie awake at night due to stress, the worries of the day coming home to roost when we finally stop moving. We tell ourselves to “tough it out” rather than to rest or reassess what we’re doing." Kira M. Newman
