Brown Bag Series: The Culture of Companionate Love in Organizations

Thursday, September 25, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Research Hall, Room 163

RSVP NOW CLOSED

“Love” is a word that has been largely neglected within the workplace domain, yet for more than half a century, psychologists have studied companionate love—defined as feelings of affection, compassion, caring, and tenderness for others—as a basic emotion fundamental to the human experience. In this presentation, Dr. O’Neill explains what we mean by a “culture of companionate love” in the workplace and examines the culture’s influence on outcomes for employees, the clients they serve, and employees’ families.  She will discuss the relevance of a culture of companionate love for a variety of industries and explores its managerial implications for the healthcare industry and beyond.
