The Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the Faas Foundation are partnering in a groundbreaking study to define how workplace culture affects employee health and psychological well-being called the Emotion Revolution in the Workplace.
Current measures of workplace culture are woefully lacking. Far too often bullying and unhealthy hierarchies are ingrained in organizations, making them invisible to human resources and employees struggling to fulfill their own potential. Longstanding metrics, such as the 360 Assessment, employee surveys, and performance management systems are outdated and do little or nothing to gauge the mood of employees.
The Emotion Revolution in the Workplace study will be the first step in helping America build psychologically healthy, safe and fair workplaces. Headlines about toxic workplace culture abound showing that corporate management is ignoring one unsalable fact: Feelings drive organizational behavior. Yet little is known about the emotions workers experience each day and how to quantify the impact of emotions.
