It's good to be grateful : Gratitude interventions at work
The effect of gratitude on well-being and work specific outcomes was examined. In this study, participants were randomly assigned to one of two experimental conditions (control and gratitude). Participants in the gratitude condition were asked to record weekly lists of four work-specific events that they were grateful for, in addition to survey measures of gratitude, affect, well-being, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment. Survey measures were administered at three time points with two-week intervals. No significant differences were discovered between the control and gratitude groups. Significant increases in well-being and organizational commitment were supported, as well as decreased negative affect in both groups across time. Theoretical and practical implications for these results are discussed along with directions for future research.
