Behavior at Work Collaborative
Behavior at Work Matters - Since 2009
The Behavior at Work Collaborative focuses on the direct link between behavior and culture and its impact on operational and system outcomes. In the ebb and flow of all successful organizations, cultures, behaviors, systems, and operations are linked intrinsically. Creating healthy work environments is a multidimensional process. To do this well, we must collaborate with many. It takes a multidisciplinary collaboration of people to address the many aspects of creating a healthy work environment.

People Want Truthfulness
The world today is too interconnected to keep toxic behavior a secret. Addressing behavior might be a wake-up call for companies whose culture supports harmful behaviors with a wink and a grin.
Gossip and complaining can be side-effects of a culture without psychological safety to openly discuss existing culture. The first step in addressing a work culture that could use some tweaking is to get people talking about it constructively in an open, respectful way.
