Reimagining Well-Being Research in HRD Academic Article uri icon


  • In recent years, a significant interest on the relevance of well-being has spurred dialog at every level -- from mundane everyday conversations about how we are feeling, to broader discussions related to the well-being of our communities and society. Joining a conversation about well-being is not difficult as we can talk to each other about our experiences. Recognizing commonalities in well-being experiences brings us together and gives shared purpose and meaning. For example, within the Academy of Human Resource Development (AHRD), we must continue to focus on the well-being of our members, stakeholders, and broad audiences we serve. Clearly, the efforts we undertake as HRD practitioners and researchers can only enhance the relevance and importance of well-being research and practice. Below, I share key academic conversations concerning well-being, and how HRD can promote greater exchange of ideas, and enhance our collective knowledge both in research and practice.
