Wellbeing in the workplace refers to the organization's capacity to reach quality standards and a culture based on trust and ethics where leaders and employees feel satisfied with the work environment and the social relationships. Wellbeing at work is an essential aspect in the НС ОС and a central area of concern to achieve quality standards that secure organizational sustainability and business success.
All books in the Routledge Human Centered Management Series are driven by people’s wellbeing. I cover the subject in my book Human Centered Management: The 5 Pillars of Organizational Quality and Global Sustainability (2017). We added two books addressing wellbeing of working people titled Wellbeing for Sustainability in the Global Workplace (Ochoa, Lepeley, & Essens, 2018) and The Wellbeing of Women in Entrepreneurship (Lepeley et al., 2020). The HCM books cover a broad spectrum of the disruptions and challenges affecting wellbeing and provide insightful solutions to help people who work IN and FOR organizations as employees and as entrepreneurs, in the case of our book on women entrepreneurs.
