The Oxford Handbook of Organizational Well-Being focuses on organizational well-being in its widest sense, and it is concerned with reviewing the factors which are associated with ill health, as well as those which promote positive health and well-being. In today's changing business environment, the financial health of an organization is increasingly dependent on the extent to which it and its members are able to transform and adapt to these changing internal and external circumstances more effectively than their competitors. Health has been identified as a key driver of socio-economic progress internationally, emphasizing the link between the health of individual workers and the overall performance of an organization. Equally, decades of research has highlighted the major role that work plays in determining physical health and psychological well-being. Articles focus on the following key issues: absenteeism and presenteeism; health and safety; models, measures, and methodologies for measuring well-being; individual factors associated with well-being such as leadership, emotion, stress, and risk and rewards; organizational factors associated with well-being such as working hours, emotional labour, technology, and job insecurity; organizational strategies for improving individual well-being. The text ends with two articles setting out new perspectivesthe link between well-being and geography and climate, and the importance of corporate social responsibility in creating a sustainable and healthy work environment.

Keywords: positive health; business environment; financial health; socio-economic progress; workers; absenteeism; presenteeism; health and safety; leadership; emotion; stress; risk; rewards; working hours; emotional labour; job insecurity; social responsibility; work environment
