Thesis Title: Leading towards well-being of others and oneself in the digitalised workplace
Abstract: Preserving and promoting employee well-being has become a prioritised agenda for organisations over recent years. Post-pandemic, organisations are settling into a ‘new normal,’ where a level of remote working has prevailed and digital technology is increasingly infiltrating the workplace. Coinciding with this, employee stress has reached an all-time high, making employee well-being more important than ever. Evidence has pointed to the role of leadership for employee well-being. However, we know less about how leaders can continue to effectively enhance employee well-being in the increasingly digitalised, changing, and uncertain workplace. Additionally, we lack insights into how leaders may promote their own well-being, with leader well-being a largely neglected topic in organisational literature so far. This research offers a topical examination of the role of leadership for enhancing leader and employee well-being in the increasingly digitalised, changing, and uncertain workplace.
