Introduction to Positive Psychology/PERMA model and its application at work


Positive psychology, PERMA model, mindfulness, well-being, appreciation, positive affirmations, workplace well-being

The definition of well-being in the workplace can be based upon principles of Positive Psychology, which can be defined as the scientific study of human strengths and virtues, rather than focusing on one’s weaknesses. Specifically, Seligman’s (2011) PERMA model (P-Positive Emotion, E-Engagement, R-Relationships, M-Meaning, A-Accomplishment) can contribute to employees’ healthy sense of well-being, fulfilment, and satisfaction in life that can lead to finding life’s true meaning. 

The PERMA model can be applied in the workplace to improve employee well-being and happiness levels in various ways such as expressing appreciation, building on one’s strengths and interests, and investing in building positive relationships. 

Positive psychology techniques and exercises (e.g., mindfulness, positive affirmations) when applied consistently can lead to greater psychological well-being over time.
