Main Abstract Content: State of the art
Maintaining a productive and healthy workforce appears to be a challenge considering the many changes organizations are facing (Kowalski, Loretto & Redman, 2015). It is now recognized that organizational health has to be considered through an integrated approach, which considers both the promotion of psychological health and work performance (Stendfors-Hayes et al., 2014). To that end, the different factors that promote both outcomes still remain to be explored and validated.
New perspectives/contributions
This symposium brings together four papers that shed light on different drivers promoting organizational health. The first two papers focus on organizational determinants. More specifically, Dagenais-Desmarais, Gilbert and Provost-Savard identify which psychosocial determinants specifically predict well-being, burnout or both. Dextras-Gauthier and Marchand show how different types of organizational cultures are associated to well-being. At the individual level, Boivin, Aubin and Malo focus on the process by which resilience is related to well-being and task performance. Finally, Montani and Courcy present the relationship between role overload and innovative work behavior and the role of work engagement and mindfulness in this process.
Research/Practical implications
Using different methods and data analyses (e.g., longitudinal, multilevel), this symposium allows for a better understanding of organizational and individual determinants to enhance organizational health. Results suggest some action levers to enable changes towards better organizational health.
