Well-being at work
Well-being is a growing topic of interest both within the practitioner and academic communities, and is more than just absentee prevention and stress reduction. We see well-being as being related to individual health, happiness, positivity and productivity at work. As well as feelings of satisfaction and enjoyment at work, we believe that well-being is deeper than this and may involve finding meaning and purpose in our work to achieve deeper fulfilment. By understanding well-being at the individual level, this may become a source of competitive advantage for organisations, particularly in terms of harnessing employee engagement. This two stage empirical study seeks to gain deeper insights into the contours of individual well-being at work, in order to help organisations and individuals to understand approaches to enhance their well-being (and hence their productivity and engagement) at work.
