January 2019 update:
After a five-year run, we are dedicating 2019 as a reflection year to reimagine how the Positive Business Project can help us all build a better world of work. This website will remain active as an archive of past projects and to give a home to the Positive Practices Handbook. Thank you for your continued effort in building more positive businesses and we look forward to connecting with you soon!
