    Positive Organizational Interventions (POI) have emerged as popular mechanisms to facilitate the development and wellbeing of employees and enhance organizational performance. However, despite its popularity within the academic literature, POIs still show mixed results and fail to yield returns within practice. Various reasons for such have been proposed, ranging from poor intervention methods/design and a lack of meta-theory through to a lack of clear, descriptive intervention protocols.

    This Special Edition aims to address contemporary approaches towards the development, implementation and evaluation of POIs which could easily be translated into practical, viable instruments for others to employ.

    Specifically, we call for:

    1. Theoretical approaches to positive organizational capacity development
    2. POI designs, methodologies, evaluation methods and intervention protocols
    3. Evidence-based POI practices
    4. Multi-disciplinary approaches to POIs
