The Positive Workplace

By  Kim Rowe, Patrick Howell

Infoline Cover

The tenets of positive performance—helping employees achieve their best, both at work and home, by supporting them in areas that contribute to their overall well-being—are based on a set of scientifically validated strategies and tactics. Organizations that foster the well-being of their employees have reduced turnover, achieved greater revenue, and gained higher profits than those that do not.

This Infoline will:

  • describe positive performance
  • explain why a positive workplace is critical to exemplary performance
  • demonstrate practical, research-validated ways that L&D professionals, department directors, and managers can effect change
  • offer guidance on how to implement specific approaches to achieve positive performance.
