Why Should HR Care about Positive Psychology?


Session Description

Positive psychology and positive organizational psychology focus on how individuals and organizations thrive and are resilient in challenging times.  Building the cornerstones of positive psychology into your organization increases outcomes that are crucial in today’s organizations, for example, engagement, creativity, commitment, and well-being.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the latest best practices.  Differentiate between the self-help ideas of the past and the evidenced based fields of positive psychology and positive organizational psychology. 

Learn the cornerstones of positive organizational psychology and their impact on work outcomes.  Create a plan to implement at least one cornerstone in your organization.
