Formatted Abstract/Summary
Understanding the cultural underpinning positive work environments is essential to managers’ ability to monitor and manage their organization’s social environment effectively. In this presentation, we argue that organizational culture is a key element of the work environment that determines the types and frequencies of affective events at work and their emotional consequences and subsequent effects on the actions of organizational members. We review the findings relating to culture in order to identify the cultural enablers of a ‘Positive Work Environment’ (PWE).

In concluding our presentation, we call for research to examine how organization-level factors shape, and are in turned shaped by affective processes at the individual and group levels of analyses, resulting in a Positive Work Environment.
