MetadataShow full item record
Innovation is the gold rush of the 21st century. To take off in the innovation rush requires “going innovative” as the entire organization, and innovative workplace plays the most critical role as it substantially influences employees who are the true initiators and executors of all new product and service development. The present study examines (a) the impact of innovative workplace on employee well-being and job performance, (b) the unique influences of innovative workplace and resiliency and passion for innovation on employee well-being, and (c) the differential impact of innovative workplace on employee job performance depending on employee passion and resiliency for innovation. Results show that innovative workplace has a positive impact on the well-being of employees which in turn promotes their job performance. Findings also reveal that innovative workplace and resiliency and passion for innovation have unique positive influences on employee well-being and that the impact of innovative workplace on employee job performance is stronger for employees with lower resiliency and passion for innovation. The contributions of this study have crucial theoretical and practical implications for scholars and practitioners. Especially in today’s highly disruptive business environment, these implications may provide practitioners and scholars with invaluable insight into the substantial value in establishing and maintaining innovative workplace and in integrating resiliency and passion for innovation into selection criteria and staffing process to achieve greater employee well-being and job performance in U.S. organizations.
