In the workplace, there is potential to develop a sustainable culture of support in which individuals contribute to each other's ability to thrive; however, many opportunities have not yet been tapped. In this research, a group of four individuals with a range of work experience and from various industries (tech, education, packaging, and construction) explore what they each might do to create a more positive and sustainable workplace environment. Through the Collaborative Inquiry Research Method, members of this group collectively agree upon an action to try in their own workplaces, observe the outcomes, and then come together to make meaning of those experiences. Through 4 cycles of this process over the course of 3 months, we identify common themes of trust, connectivity, and appreciation for one’s work as being significant factors that can contribute to building a more positive, sustainable, and productive workplace environment.
