Handbook on the Temporal Dynamics of Organizational Behavior

Edited by Yannick Griep and Samantha D. Hansen

Handbook on the Temporal Dynamics of Organizational Behavior is designed to help scholars begin to address the temporal shortcomings in the extant organizational behavior literature. The handbook provides conceptual and methodological reasons to study organizational behavior from a dynamic perspective and offers new conceptual and theoretical insights on some of the most popular organizational behavior topics. Unlike many other handbooks, this one provides methodological and analytical tools, including syntax and example data files, to help researchers tackle dynamic research questions effectively.

Chapter 18: The temporal perspective on well-being at work: lessons learned and future trends

Despoina Xanthopoulou, Kevin Daniels and Ana Isabel Sanz-Vergel

Abstract

We highlight the added value of the temporal perspective in the study of employee well-being for theory development and organizational practice. First, we explain why and how the study of temporal dynamics adds value over static approaches to employee well-being. We review empirical studies that adopt a dynamic perspective, and explicate what we learned from this complementary approach regarding the processes that explain well-being at work. To answer the “what’s next” question, we take a multilevel perspective and try to better incorporate temporality in the study of work-related well-being in order to understand how changes across levels of analysis of different dynamism may cause changes in employee wellness. We discuss novel methodological approaches (e.g., shortitudinal studies) that have value for future studies of temporality at different levels of analysis. Finally, we discuss the implications of our approach for (research in) organizational practice.
