CompassionLab scholarship draws attention to suffering as an “inevitable, ubiquitous, yet often overlooked aspect of organizational life (Lilius et al., 2011). Because “pain and compassion are not separate from ‘being a professional’ and the ‘doing of work’ in organizations,” (Frost et al., 2000) our scholarship focuses on organizations as “sites of everyday healing and pain” (Frost et al., 2000).
We are part of a broader community of scholars interested in positive organizational scholarship who are dedicated to understanding how work organizations enable flourishing at the individual and collective levels.
We are a group of organizational scholars who strive to inspire a new vision of organizations as sites for the expression of compassion.
We are committed to understanding a full range of processes and outcomes related to compassion in organizations. By employing both qualitative and quantitative methods, we study organizations with a dual dedication to fostering understanding and inspiring actions that foster compassion at work.
