Campbell U’s new Work Positive program puts a positive spin on work life.

WEB EXCLUSIVE We know. Sometimes your day job keeps you up at night. If complaining about your job has become your go-to topic, enter Work Positive from Campbell University’s Raleigh location. 

Created by alumnus Dr. Joey Faucette and colleague Jane Creswell with the MO of “transforming company culture,” the innovative new program offers remote professional development courses through Campbell’s Adult & Online Education to improve employee outlook on both your current job—and overall career. 

“Prior to COVID-19, Gallup reported almost 85% of Americans were dissatisfied in the current work environment,” says Faucette, best-selling author of Work Positive in a Negative World. “Research consistently shows positive work environments improve employee productivity, leading to better customer service and job satisfaction, as well as increases in operating income and company earnings.”

Dr. Sherryl McLaughlin, Adult & Online Education assistant dean and Raleigh site coordinator, says she and her peers were in the process of adding new programs to the university’s lineup pre-pandemic—which, since, only served to reinforce their vision of the need for online and remote training for businesses.

Program courses are on offer for small businesses and Fortune 500 corporations for individual or employee team training, and include three options: a two-month Keys to Work Positive program, a six-month Work Positive Manager Coach Training or a yearlong Get Positive Coach Training. 

In the Keys to Work Positive program, for example, employees learn to use positive psychology and personal development skills to turn negative thoughts positive—so as to increase job satisfaction and boost work productivity to enable them to contribute to the company’s overall success.

“Despite the current situation, business leaders should be investing in resources to support their workers,” says Faucette. “Businesses that aren’t performing at full potential slow economic growth.”
