Discovering a New Abnormal: Returning to Work in the Midst of Grief

Talk description:
This incubator presentation considers the ways in which organizations and the relationships people have within their organizations can respond to an employee’s grief in ways that increase feelings of being valued, being seen, and being cared for at work when they return to work in the midst of their grieving.

Jessi Hinz is a fourth-year PhD candidate at Case Western Reserve University. Her research focuses on the intersection of positive relationships at work (including high-quality connections) and positive identity development. In particular, Jessi is interested in how people grow through their relationships at work, with a special curiosity around prosocial interactions and gratitude.

Research is the heart of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS), and we want to make sure that we support each other in developing high quality research. To that end, we created the Adderley Positive Research Incubator for sharing and encouraging POS-related research ideas that are at various stages of development.
