What are the characteristics of organisations that allow and encourage us to be our best selves…?
Academics and practitioners have attempted different answers to this question, referring to distinctive corporate cultures, track records of high performance, or distinctive ‘employer brands’ to explain what draws people in and produces their best work.

This new research does not simply focus on the sources of dysfunction and disengagement. Rather, it explores people’s positive visions for firms and how they are attempting to make these a reality.
