There is a business case for organizations to prioritize and invest in employee well-being. Utilizing the scientific study of positive psychology, this literature review highlights the employee and employer benefits of increasing employee well-being and describes a handful of different practices organizations can implement in their workplaces to do so: increasing access to nature in the workplace by incorporating natural light or encouraging walks outside; increasing employee autonomy by allowing more flexible work schedules; prioritizing positive work relationships by implementing specific interventions; and providing opportunities for employees to experience flow at work through activities such as meditation. These interventions may lead to happier and healthier employees as well increased organizational productivity and profitability.
