Wellbeing at Work Research Group

We are a multidisciplinary research group with the focus on enhancing wellbeing at work through multi-method research and development. Our research themes include, for example, wellbeing at work and productivity, wellbeing in digitalising work, leading and managing wellbeing at work, entrepreneurs’ wellbeing, and skills and competencies in changing work. We develop work and wellbeing through research-based, strategy- and customer-driven, and resource- and solution-oriented approach. We provide tailored services to help and support workplaces in growing their expertise in well-being at work.
