Gavin and Mason (2004) underlined that “Many organizations have ignored this fundamental lesson. When a workplace is designed to create meaning for its workers, they tend to be healthier and happier. Healthy and happy employees tend to be more productive over the long run, generating better goods and more fulfilling services for their customers and the others with whom they interact and do business. These three things – health, happiness, and productivity – are the essential ingredients of a good society. Improvement in productivity alone, which is almost the sole emphasis of many organizations, is not enough”.
Considering the emphasis placed on virtues, the model can have some practical implications in the field of recruitment, promotion, leadership and organization.
