The rapidly growing field of organizational psychology has over the last few years become one of the fastest growing branches of psychology. Particularly, taking care of the health and well-being of employees in the workplace cannot only be considered a moral imperative but has begun globally to be recognised as driving forces of socio-economic growth. Employee health and well-being is crucial to organizations in regards to improved productivity, employee performance, job satisfaction, staff retention, reduced absenteeism, increased job satisfaction and work commitment. Thus, research relating to employee well-being and health has produced some significant results and furthered our understanding of this subsection of the organizational psychology field.
The evolvement of the way we work has also gained traction in the organizational psychology field in relation to remote working. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many workforces have adapted more or less permanently to this form of working. Frontiers has organized a series of Research Topics to highlight the latest advancements in research across the field of organizational psychology and the implications of remote working.
This editorial initiative of particular relevance led by Professor Rolf van Dick, Specialty Chief Editor of the Employee Well-being and Health section, alongside Dr. Anja Baethge and Dr. Nina Junker, is focused on the implications of remote working on employee well-being and health.
Where employee health and well-being are crucial to organizations in regards to improved productivity, employee performance, job satisfaction, staff retention, reduced absenteeism, increased job satisfaction and work commitment, this Research Topic solicits high-quality submissions that address employee well-being and health within a remote workforce. We are looking, for instance, to papers focusing on remote working forms in relation to
• Work-related stress• Employee burnout and engagement• Social identification and health in organizational contexts• Well-being interventions and their efficacy• Absence, rehabilitation and retention• Work detachment• Health and leadership• Contemporary issues in workplace health
Authors are encouraged to identify the greatest challenges in employee well-being and health from a remote working perspective, and how to address those challenges. The goal of this special edition Research Topic is to inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the field who are particularly interested in the remote workforce to (1) advance our theorising and inspire future research but also to (2) derive at practical implications informing, for instance, the design of remote work or good leadership practices under remote working conditions.
