Occupational Wellbeing

Well-being at work is an overall experience of how an individual feels at work. It includes work-related attitudes, emotions and alertness. Well-being at work is influenced by working conditions, the properties of the work itself and individual factors. Both management and the employee’s own actions are significant for well-being. Good management ensures working conditions that maintain and promote well-being: these include both the reasonableness of work requirements, such as workload, and job resources, such as the work’s potential for personal development.

Information related to well-being at work is important as well-being at work – or its opposite “ill-being at work” – is known to have an influence on both organization-level and individual-level factors: the quality of work performance, interaction in the work community, learning and competence, commitment to the workplace, health and work ability as well as work–life balance.
