Special Issue: Work and Organizational Psychology 2019 (WOP2019)

A Special Issue of EJASA (open access journal indexed in SCOPUS and Thomson Reuters Web of ScienceTM Core Collection - Emerging Sources Citation Index) is devoted to the promotion of healthy workplaces able to cope with the new challenges in the current scenario of work and organizations. The aim of such theoretical framework is to promote knowledge development for healthy and sustainable well-being at work.

Healthy workplaces encourage and support physical and psychological health and well-being of employees (Day & Nielsen, 2017). Moreover, a healthy organization focuses not only on a successful business but also on a positive connection between organizational profitability and workers’ well-being (Di Fabio, 2017). This perspective incorporates four different levels of analysis: individual, group, organizational and inter-organizational, thus defining a systemic vision of work. Theoretical frameworks such as the Job Demands-Resources Model (Bakker & Demerouti, 2010, 2017) integrate these perspectives and can be used to strengthen the systemic vision of work. The Special Issue aims at deepening the knowledge about those factors related to work and well-being under a positive psychology perspective.

The connection between individual, group, organizational and inter-organizational determinants and well-being employees, organizational climate and business play an important role in the context of healthy workplaces: in particular, exploring antecedents and consequences can contribute to the development of new personal and organizational skills, as well as productive supervising behaviors. Relationships represent another important concern, which could be a central feature of healthy organizations (Blustein, 2006, 2011).

This special issue aims at collecting qualified research papers that propose developments of new statistical methods for the analysis of the above-mentioned levels and their influence on organizational well-being (e.g. individual, group, organizational and inter-organizational outcomes). Furthermore, great attention will be devoted to the assessment of organizational interventions, in terms of effectiveness, methods and tools. Statistical techniques such as:

  • Exploratory statistics;
  • Network Analysis;
  • Latent variables;
  • Generalized mixed-effect models;
  • Statistical models for count data;
  • Categorical data analysis;
  • Big data;
  • Mediation and moderation analysis;
  • Diary studies and longitudinal data;
  • Sentiment analysis;
  • Text mining;
  • Statistical models for spatial data
  • Structural Equation Modelling
  • PLS Path Modelling

Papers investigating healthy workplaces, as well as measuring organizational quality from a psychological, economic, sociological perspective are thus welcome.
