Question description

Though performance, wellbeing and psychological health and related topics have been well researched for decades, societies all over the world continue to see rises in psychological and physical health problems in the workplace (Cooper, 2013). The rising cost and incidence of mental illness and psychological problems in the workplace remains, for instance, the primary cause of sickness absences (Black 2008; CIPD 2013). Organisations and governments are looking for evidence-based ways to prevent and address the occurrence of ill-health and to promote wellbeing and performance in all organizational contexts. Thus far, research evidence informing practical, innovative and effective ways in which intervene is in short supply though beginning to emerge (cf Giga et al., 2003; Sui et al, 2014).

This special issue aims to address this evidence gap by publishing on the one hand rigorous evaluation studies of innovative organizational interventions or on the other novel and innovative interventions with emerging evidence of making a difference to improve the well-being and productivity of people at work.

Consequently, we are especially receptive to (i) evaluation studies of single interventions which are strong on methodological design and are situated in a sound theoretical or thematic base (ii) meta-analytical studies which offer significant new insights (iii) studies which link both health and performance outcomes and (iv) studies that clearly articulate how the interventions described were conducted.

We welcome diverse methodologies: the quality and integrity of the evidence of change as a result of interventions is the most important consideration. The issue will bring together innovations and interventions showing how positive change can occur as well as orient future discoveries.
