Successful businesses understand that employee well-being and organizational performance are inextricably linked. Beyond remediating problems and addressing dysfunction, psychology can also inform efforts to promote positive behavior and effectiveness.
This session will explore APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Model as a comprehensive framework for creating work environments where both employees and organizations can thrive. Through didactic components, interactive discussion and examples from award-winning organizations, participants will learn about the types of practices that contribute to a healthy, high-performing organization and discuss ways that leaders and psychologists who work with them can apply the model in the workplace.
