The IPPA Work and Organizations Division’s mission is to serve as a bridge between research and practice and facilitate collaboration to increase the incorporation of positive psychology in academic research related to organizations and the practice of positive psychology in the organizational context, thereby positively transforming the way the world works.
Who Should Join?
The IPPA Work and Organizations Division is a forum for academics, researchers, practitioners, and organizations interested in the study and application of positive psychological concepts in organizational settings. Scholars and practitioners engaged in industrial/organizational psychology, organizational behavior, organizational development and change, management, HR, and related areas, including those relatively new to positive psychology, are encouraged to join the division and discover new ways to study and apply positive psychological principles in the organizational context.
What Does the Division Do?
The division provides researchers and practitioners a forum to discuss and collaborate in the development and application of positive psychology principles aimed to improve individual, team and organizational well-being and performance across various contexts and cultures. The Work and Organization Division’s vision and goals are described in this inaugural charter. The charter, which was ratified in 2015, informs the division’s work.
