Show Summary Details


The success of an organization is invariably judged on the basis of its financial performance and its ability to provide high-quality goods and services over time. In a changing internal and external environment, the financial health of an organization is increasingly dependent on the extent to which an organization and its members are able to transform and adapt to these changing circumstances more effectively than their competitors. Physical health and well-being are determined by a range of social, psychological, and biological factors and are conceptualized as resources that allow people to lead individually, socially, and economically productive lives. The aim of this book, in focusing on organizational well-being, in its widest sense, is to review the factors which are associated with ill-health as well as those which promote positive health and well-being.

Keywords: high-quality goods; physical health; biological factors; organizational well-being; ill-health
