There is a new, non-traditional workplace where employees collaborate digitally from various remote locations (Scully-Russ & Torraco, 2020). Despite the transition from office to remote workspaces, professionals still value happiness and dream of flourishing (VanderWeele, 2021). Researchers identified six distinct but correlated dimensions of flourishing including emotional health, physical health, meaning and purpose, character strengths, social connectedness, and financial security (Weziak-Bialowolska et al., 2021). The new workplace is forcing organizations to revamp traditional methods that facilitate well-being as in-person methods become less viable (Scully-Russ & Torraco, 2020). Fortunately, mobile applications effectively deliver training and interventions (Collins et al., 2020). Whether Olympic athletes or working professionals, individuals use imagery to flourish (Adolphs et al., 2018). To use imagery, one creates a mental picture of a desired future state and forms intentions to make it a reality (Adolphs et al., 2018). This quantitative study examined whether technology-assisted imagery can be associated with increased flourishing among remote workers. The researcher deployed the Well-Being Assessment (Weziak-Bialowolska et al., 2021) to assess professionals at a technology firm. Participants were randomly assigned to a treatment or control group. Following a three-week imagery practice via mobile app, the researcher repeated the flourishing observation. Statistical tests revealed a positive relationship between technology-assisted imagery and flourishing levels. It was effective across all demographics and vocational levels.
