Abstract
The most up-to-date research on the relationship between employee wellbeing and organizational performance will be discussed. Questions, such as: Is there evidence of a causal link between employee wellbeing and organizational performance? Which is more predictive of performance: physical (health risk assessment information) or psychological well-being? How does job satisfaction factor into this relationship? Performance improvement, policy, intervention, and outcome evaluation implications for organizations will be addressed.
