Price: £10.00

This article takes positive psychology concepts from the domain of individual psychology and applies them to the workplace. The adaptation of the Approaches to Happiness Questionnaire (Seligman, 2002), developed by Martin Seligman, suggests that the three dimensions of pleasure, engagement and meaning are relevant to employees in the organisational context. In addition, Seligman┬┤s (2002) classification of Character Strengths and Virtues is explored, and their relevance for workplace performance is discussed. The paper concludes by suggesting that positive psychology is a useful lens through which approaches to work and employee potential can be explored further and suggests some future research in the area.
