This paper produces a preliminary version of a strategic framework for managing employee flourishing. Flourishing, a term from positive psychology, describes the experience of “the good life”. Providing this experience benefits employees. It also motivates them to sustain the enterprise that provides it. This positions employee flourishing as a strategy for long-term enterprise performance, the key concern of industrial engineering. The framework incorporates a systems approach and literature from a variety of bodies of knowledge, including organizational behaviour and human resource management. The framework includes a process, tools and elements that assist enterprises in managing employee flourishing.
