SHINE Joins Human Flourishing Program

We are pleased to share the news that SHINE has joined the Human Flourishing Program at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University to advance a systematic approach to human flourishing at the organizational level.

“It is exciting to welcome the SHINE research team into the Human Flourishing Program,” says Tyler VanderWeele, Director of the Human Flourishing Program, “as the work that we’ve been able to do together has considerably advanced our knowledge on promoting well-being in the workplace, and having SHINE with us will simply strengthen this work yet further.”

“Our two programs’ missions are aligned,” explains Eileen McNeely, SHINE Executive Director Eileen McNeely. “SHINE focuses on the study of flourishing at work – including the drivers and levers for change, the role of leadership and organizational culture, the connection to corporate goals and purpose, the state of the physical and psychosocial environments, work-life balance, work arrangements now and in the future, health and economic inequities, occupational health and safety, supply chain resilience, and social impact reporting – in an effort to drive collective impact that transforms flourishing for all.”
