If human resources programs and workplace quality initiatives are steadily advancing, why are so many struggling to enjoy the fruits of their labour? When we become too focused on working hard, we begin to forget what we’re working for. It’s time our workplaces go beyond allowing happiness and start becoming a source of it. In order to achieve a proper balance between satisfaction and productivity, we need to better understand how to define and measure the quality of life in the workplace.
The Thriving Organizations Research Collective (TORC) is working to uncover key metrics, the strongest indicators, and best practices for workplace happiness and satisfaction, as well as create a better understanding of what forces and policies are creating negative impacts on workplace quality of life.
At Telfer, experiential learning opportunities for our students allow them to learn these skills not only in academia, but also in practice by competing in case competitions and serving on student clubs, committees, and mentorship programs.
