1. Promote improved worker health, development, and well-being
2. Increase organizational value through improved job quality and work-life
3. Inform public policy makers to improve lives at work and beyond. 

Why this Center:

 
Shifting employment options, new work systems, and workforce changes are transforming how people experience work and career paths. 
 
The Work Science Center focuses on the psychology of individual-context interactions that underlie working experiences, career biographies, employability, behavior, health, and well-being.

How we work:

 
We promote progress in basic and translational research on Work Science Center topics through mini-conferences, workshops, our Thinking Forward paper series, news and event announcements, and regular newsletters.
