Center for Working Well

About Us

Fitting with Purdue University’s tripartite mission of learning, discovery, and engagement, the Purdue Center for Working Well (CWW) aims to be a cutting-edge center at the forefront of challenges facing modern workforces, and employees’ desire to “work well."

The core mission of the CWW is to develop a robust understanding of what “working well” means to employees and organizations—here, encompassing challenges with promoting personal well-being (e.g., reducing workforce burnout, promoting thriving), creating sustainable performance, adopting to grand challenges in modern organizations (e.g., societal issues; hybridization and automation of work), and cultivating positive and inclusive relationships at work and home broadly defined.

Research Highlight


For the 2023-2024 academic year, there will be two courses that are affiliated with the Center for Working Well:
