How to Enhance the Employee Well-Being at Work?
Keywords:Employees, Well-Being, Work
Purpose: This paper aims to evaluate the predictors of well-being in the workplace, psychological capital and mindfulness in particular.
Study design/methodology/approach: The research was based on a convenient sample of 65 part-time online students at DOBA Business School. Two standardized questionnaires were administered online to gather the data: The Workplace PERMA Profiler and the Psychological Capital Questionnaire. Additionally, measures of stress perception and mindfulness practice were added to the survey instrument.
Findings: The results have shown that psychological capital, hope in particular, significantly predicts employee well-being, while the frequency of practising mindfulness does not improve the predictive power of the linear regression model.
Originality/value: The paper discusses the available measures and interventions and provides concrete guidelines for managers to enhance employee well-being in the workplace.
