Job flourishing is a positive mental state at work, encompassing emotional, psychological, and social well-being, including both eudemonic and hedonic aspects. Existing research on job flourishing has primarily focused on general well-being, leaving a gap in understanding it in the workplace. To address this, this dissertation aims to answer the question: 'What drives individual job flourishing within organizations?'
The dissertation comprises three core chapters: a conceptual review (Chapter 2), and two empirical studies (Chapters 3 and 4). Chapter 2 synthesizes existing research on job flourishing, leading to a multilevel conceptual model and a future research agenda. Chapters 3 and 4 test distinct research models, drawing from various organizational behavior theories. Each chapter explores predictors and mechanisms of job flourishing, considering both eudemonic and hedonic well-being. Using multilevel-two-wave survey design, the empirical studies involved 1,211 teachers and 169 primary school leaders in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The contributions of this dissertation are threefold: it enhances the conceptual and theoretical understanding of job flourishing, provides robust evidence on predictors from eudemonic and hedonic perspectives, and advances a multilevel view of job flourishing. Additionally, it offers practical implications for individuals, leaders, co-workers/teams, and organizations to promote job flourishing and performance.
