Chapter 14: How thriving at work matters for creating psychologically healthy workplaces: current perspectives and implications for the new world of work

Gretchen Spreitzer and Eun Bit Hwang


This chapter examines how thriving at work matters for creating psychologically healthy workplaces. In reviewing the literature on thriving at work, we identify the key workplace determinants of thriving at work and in turn how they matter for the creation of a psychologically healthy workplace. We close the chapter by looking into the future at core aspects of the new world of work and what they hold for thriving and psychologically healthy workplaces. Whether the effect is positive or negative largely depends on the choice and autonomy of those working in it.
