Wellbeing at Work Research Group, Faculty of Management and Business, Tampere University
The Wellbeing at Work Research Group is a multi-disciplinary research team. The group aims to raise awareness of the meaning and importance of wellbeing at work and its implications on productivity. We offer research, training and development services in the fields of wellbeing at work. By applying a broad understanding of wellbeing at work, the group focuses on academic research, developing organizations and popularizing the research results. Both academic excellence and societal relevance are valued as goals of the research efforts.
The research work done by the group is mainly action and intervention research targeting for change and development. During the last few years, the emphasis of the research has been on human capital and its’ implications on wellbeing at work and productivity. Research themes of the group include, for example, relational leadership, new indicators of wellbeing at work, innovation and creativity, wellbeing and productivity, information ergonomics, social capital, psychological capital, mindfulness, emotional skills, staying at work and wellbeing issues in small and medium sized enterprises. Several hundred organizations from both private and public sectors have participated in the research and development projects.
