Positive Organisations

An emerging systematic approach to sustainable business practices with a positive impact.

It is Time for the Positive Organisation

Organisations have become the primary environment to which people want to bring their authentic selves, and perform at their highest level. In other words being able to express themselves, be productive and fulfilled. People are no longer staying with companies that do not support their growth and satisfaction.

Building positive organisations isn’t a fad or trend that will go away. It’s what modern employees are demanding and want to experience at work. A positive organisation offers a work environment that challenges them and assists them to grow, but equally allows them to be authentic, explorative and to have fun.

The pressure is on for organisations to start prioritising their employees’ needs, values and strengths, which will help them grow and develop. People are no longer required to tolerate dissatisfying work conditions, and as the market becomes more competitive, staff turnover is more common than ever. 

The key differentiator between a standard organisation and a positive organisation is the focus on employee well-being and happiness. It is a blended two-way approach that benefits the individual and the organisation.

The trajectory with building positive organisations is that it isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather a bespoke process that is very much dependent on the stage the organisation and team is at. Shifting into a positive organisation requires a mindset and culture change throughout the entire organisation.

Key Components of a Positive Organisation

A positive organisation is one which thrives and where the people flourish; a win-win situation for both.
