Upcoming Whitepaper: Well-being, Relationships and Technology
In a couple of weeks, we will launch our third whitepaper, which will focus on well-being in the office. A topic I’ve been fascinated with for a while now and I’m not alone. As an introduction, our graduate student Tobias Froehlich will give his fascinating view on the topic of Well-being and the direct rela tion it has with our actual relationships at work.
Companies are interested in driving greater innovation. The combination of factors that results in the development of peak performing individuals, teams and organizations that are healthy and happy represents the Holy Grail for those concerned with organizational effectiveness. In a knowledge-based, global economy, investing in well-being is completely in the interest of doing business.
We believe that technology plays a crucial role in creating the perfect working environment and support the well-being of employees. This paper indicates how far technology can go in supporting the working process in the twenty-first century in which well-being is a central topic. We try to look beyond our own influence but at the total picture. To have a purpose in one’s work is to achieve what we might call “company actualization”. We were very happy to have great input from different institutes as D/dock, Leesman, WELL Building Institute and Edge Technologies, who are also looking at this theme from other perspectives. In the whitepaper we discuss every level from the perspective of the 3 elements as introduced in the previous whitepapers; Bricks, Bytes and Behaviour. Also, the feedback loops as introduced in the previous papers will make a reappearance.
As an introduction, our graduate student Tobias Froehlich will give his fascinating view on the topic of Well-being and the direct relation it has with our actual relationships at work. Relationships have a broad impact on our subjective well-being at work. They influence our feelings of belonging within our organization, our ability to be ourselves at work, and our ability to find purpose & meaning through our work. Dive into the topic of affairs at work in the upcoming four blogs by Tobias.
