This chapter explores pathways for future research advances in workplace stress and wellbeing. The chapter first frames the two constructs of workplace wellbeing and workplace stress, examining their roots in the moral philosophy of Adam Smith and the physiological research of Walter B. Cannon. The research traditions of psychobiology, The Grant Study, occupational stress, Army STARRS, and public health in the workplace are reviewed. A six-point research agenda is set forth that emphasizes: multidisciplinary collaborations, outliers and unexpected events, high risk situations and/or occupations; screening and surveillance mechanisms; targeted subgroups in working populations; and the workplace as the subject of analysis.
