Promoting employee well-being and organizational performance
Introduction
The American Psychological Association’s Center for Organizational Excellence works to enhance the functioning of individuals, groups, organizations and communities through the application of psychology to a broad range of workplace issues.

The Center houses APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program (PHWP), a public education initiative designed to engage the employer community, raise public awareness about the value psychology brings to the workplace and promote programs and policies that enhance employee well-being and organizational performance.
The PHWP includes APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards, support of local programs currently implemented by 56 state, provincial and territorial psychological associations, and a variety of resources for employers and the psychologists who work with them.

Internally, the Center bridges APA’s business units and provides an overarching strategy for promoting the health and well-being of the association’s own workforce, thereby supporting APA’s functioning and effectiveness.
