    Gabriel co-authors award-winning paper

    Full story: Gabriel co-authors award-winning paper

  • How making sense of life’s messiness can lead to happiness at work and home
    Allison Gabriel, who studies stress management, interpersonal relationships and work-life balance at the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business at Purdue University, also leads the Center for Working Well, which aims to be a cutting-edge center at the forefront of challenges facing modern workforces.
  • Purdue Expert: Work Boundaries
    Allison Gabriel explains the importance of work balance for the health of employees. Employees need to learn how to detach from work when they are at home. It has shown that employees come back more motivated and better able to preform tasks if they receive ample rest from work. It is also important for the leaders to take care of themselves for the people working for them.
  • Purdue Expert: Remote Work Productivity
    Allison Gabriel explains how work from home has helped to increase productivity as employees are able to better balance a work and life lifestyle. Taking breaks throughout the day helps employees to be better preforming. It does have some downsides as it can be isolating or create a need to work longer hours. She explains how work needs to be more focused on people’s whole lives, not just their life at work. She calls managers to allow employees to “bring their whole selves to work”. She encourages managers to create a authentic environment with real conversations where people can talk about challenges they are having.
