Short description of contents:
The present study examines the impact of a new positive psychology intervention, i.e. the family intervention, on job crafting, flow at work and work engagement. The positive psychology intervention under analysis focused on the improvement of six work and organizational-related dimensions referred to as individual resources (i.e. “framing”, “attitudes”, “meaningfulness”, “identity”, “leading self”, and “yoked together”), which are hypothesized as bearing a positive impact on job crafting behaviours, flow at work and work engagement. A sample of employees (N=89) working in a pharmaceutical Italian company received a 2-day resource-based intervention based on meaningfulness, mindfulness and practical exercises. A halfday follow-up intervention was delivered after two months of the first intervention. Self-reported questionnaires were completed prior the intervention and one, two, and three weeks after it. Findings from a repeated measures anova suggest that the intervention was effective in fostering higher job crafting, flow at work and work engagement, which are important drivers of happiness at work. This initiative encourages future studies and researchers to focus on designing interventions directed at enhancing and developing crafting attitudes and happiness at work. The proposed study provides evidence that positive psychology intervention could improve employee well-being and employees’ proactive behaviours, outcomes that could represent a noticeable advantage for both employees and organizations.
