Content: Psychological flourishing is a more inclusive conception of well-being. It can be described as the desirable state whereby both hedonist and eudaemonist components of well-being are simultaneously present within an individual (Huppert & So, 2013). This concept offers new prospects on the understanding of person’ positive feelings and functioning (Diener et al., 2010; Hone et al., 2014). Several variables could explain how individuals flourish in general ways but also at a professional level. Among these variables, recent studies showed that personality traits were important predictors of both general and work-contextualized psychological flourishing (Jovenin et al., 2016; Villieux et al., 2016). However, perceived organizational support seems to have also beneficial direct effects on various aspects of well-being at work (Eisenberger et al., 1997).
A questionnaire assessing personality traits (HEXACO model; Ashton & Lee, 2004), perceived organizational support and psychological flourishing at work was completed by a sample of 138 French employees.
Correlation analysis indicated that Honesty-Humility, Extraversion and Conscientiousness had the highest positive correlation with psychological flourishing at work, whereas perceived organizational support was moderately related. Results also indicated that perceived organizational support moderates the relationship between extraversion and psychological flourishing at work.
These results suggested that both individual and organizational characteristics may influence work-contextualized psychology flourishing. Therefore, wellbeing-centered interventions should focus on these two aspects in order to increase their effectiveness on employees. Benefits of fostering flourishing at work were discussed.
