What is the science saying regarding the state of wellbeing and how does this affect organisations?
Wellbeing is a very general term and is different for individuals across different cultures. The easiest way to start thinking about it is how it contrasts or is similar to mental health. And, you know, we’re all very familiar with the concept of mental health.
Up to about 25-30 years ago, psychology was very much focused on how to prevent poor mental health and on what we sometimes think about as the negative side of wellbeing and mental health and how to prevent that.
People working in a place where they are not unwell are not necessarily thriving or at their best there. So, about 20 years ago or so, there was a movement in psychology that decided to not just think about how to prevent poorer types of mental health and wellbeing, but actually think more about how to enhance their positive side, and that became very popular.
