The impact of a positive approach on organizations and how to measure it
Since organizations focus on employees, the Institute for Wellbeing and Happiness Sciences has created an initiative to measure well-being and its impact on the work environment.
The initiative, named Factor Wellbeing 2021, will measure a positive approach in organizations based on proven models, organized into four dimensions.
1. Employee well-being
All activities designed by the organizations to enhance the physical and mental health care of the collaborators. This includes the work environment where work-life balance occurs.
2. Focus on strengths
This pillar measures whether the organization is using its resources positively. That is, focus on your team’s strengths, not your opportunity areas. For example, when it is known that the team has experience and this will bring loyalty to the organization; Whereas teams lacking expertise can save energy.
3. A positive environment
Leadership practices that foster a good organizational climate; Where open communication is the key and cooperation networks are established between members.
4. Meaningful action
In addition to the financial reward that the organization gives to its collaborators for the tasks they perform, people spend most of their time working. Therefore, it must have meaning and significance.
The director of the Institute of Well-Being and Happiness Sciences at Tecmilenio University explains that a person should feel valued in their team for the work that results from it, which also impacts society.
