Content: The aim of this study was to explore the effects of a Positive Resources Intervention in work context. A controlled trial of a multi component Positive Intervention was conducted on a medium sized services organization (N=40). The program was offered to the staff as an initiative to improve their psychosocial health, and combined Mindfulness, Character Strengths, Positive Coping and Psychological Capital in a carefully designed sequence of four sessions of four hours each, and a fifth two-hour session focused on evaluating the program and the training transfer to the participants’ specific jobs.  Pre, Post and Follow Up (1-3-6 Months) evaluations of Mindfulness, Coping, PsyCap, Strengths Use, Engagement and Performance where taken. The preliminary data analysis suggests that the intervention program was successful in boosting the previous levels of all the evaluated variables. Further data is still being analyzed. The practical implications of these findings suggest that multi component positive interventions programs could be an effective Healthy Organizational Practice to boost engagement and performance among professionals in a lasting way. To our knowledge, this is the first study to analyze the effects of a multi component Positive Intervention.
Keywords: Positive Intervention, Engagement, Performance, Psychological Capital, Mindfulness.
