The Center for Working Well will aim to be at the cutting edge of research when it comes to “working well.” This means ensuring that employees are able to thrive at work and at home by maintaining their well-being (i.e., reducing emotional exhaustion, burnout, and anxiety) and building positive social relationships at work.

We also want to understand how the changing nature of work (e.g., remote and hybrid work, digital nomadism) and issues at the work-nonwork interface (e.g., complex caregiving demands, and the impact of health issues on the workplace) affect well-being. To that end, faculty associates within the Daniels School and across Purdue will have the opportunity to apply for an annual small grant program to fund research related to the mission of the center.
