We work where they live: On the ritualizing of high-quality connections in a nursing home

Talk description:

This is early stage research and will be the third paper in my PhD, which focuses on how we create and sustain high-quality connections with others at work. It focuses on a core group of co-workers in a nursing home that was identified, by the parent organization, as a place where relationships between staff were of a high-quality. At this stage, I am leaning into theory on interaction rituals and the high-quality connections literature.

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.
