Supporting the Center for Positive Organizations
Building a better world of work
In today’s dynamic, global economy, it is imperative that emerging leaders care about more than just their business’ short-term bottom line. Leaders must maintain a commitment to creating organizations that achieve sustainable, long-term success through bringing out the best in their people.
We believe with conviction that when business leaders embrace positive practices, they enable employees to thrive. Their organizations benefit the communities they serve. And inevitably, they create value that is passed on to shareholders.
We are a world-class research Center that offers transformational knowledge to students, academics, and leaders. Through Positive Organizational Scholarship, we disseminate the science that enables people to be their best at work and companies to become their most profitable.
The Center was founded in 2002, at a time when Positive Organizational Scholarship was an obscure field of study in academia and an unfamiliar practice in the business world. Through its transformative programs, we now educate future leaders at Michigan Ross and across the university about positive organizational practices, and serve as a hub for researchers and business professionals who wish to collaborate and further their understanding of the field.
On behalf of the students, scholars, and leaders who benefit from the Center’s work, thank you for partnership and support. With you, the Center will continue to bring out the best in people and organizations throughout the world.
