Work design
makes life better.

Thrive at Work is a world-first
well-being initiative centred on designing work that helps employees, organisations and industry to thrive.

Led by the Future of Work Institute at Curtin University, Thrive at Work has been developed with leading mental health bodies – for and with, businesses.

Elements of the Thrive at Work journey

What helps people Thrive at Work?

The Thrive at Work initiative is based upon an integrated, evidence-based framework and underpinned by decades of research on work design. The framework explains how we can support people in workplaces to get well (Mitigate Illness), stay well (Prevent Harm) and be the best they can be (Promote Thriving).

Thriving employees create thriving organisations.

It makes business sense

Use our comprehensive library of statistics to help quantify the impact thriving employees could have on your business. Demonstrate to your organisation the opportunities presented by focusing on workplace well-being. These opportunities include financial returns, increased productivity and engagement, decreased turnover and absence, compliance with legislation, enhanced reputation, and employees who thrive in all domains of their lives.
