Well Being is a key pillar of humanistic management starting from a historical perspective and its Aristotelian roots, to its utilitarian reinterpretation.

This reinterpretation of well-being as utility became the foundation of modern economic thought at the end of the 19th century and, in turn, the basis for a large part of management theory.  Humanistic management suggests a return to the foundational concept of well-being as flourishing (Eudaimonia).

The creation of shared well-being, not wealth, is the ultimate goal of organizing practices in the humanistic perspective, and argues that this better serves individuals, companies and society.
