    Psychologists over the past five decades have been interested in understanding and improving the work cultures in offices to ensure job satisfaction and better performance of the employee and hence increased profit of the organization. A study aimed at improving employee mental health and well-being in SMEs and public organizations was conducted by the psychologists of Free University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.. The study conducted was innovative in multiple ways.

    Firstly, the study goes beyond the current debate on whether individual or organizational-level interventions is more effective when it comes to improving employee health and well-being and tests the cumulative effects of multilevel interventions, i.e, interventions addressing group, individual, leader and organizational levels. Secondly, it employs realist evaluation for exploration and identifying the working ingredients of and the conditions required for each level of intervention, and their outcomes. Finally, it comprises an economic evaluation that will assess both the cost-effectiveness analysis and the affordability of the interventions from the perspective of the employer.

    Therefore, this study has successfully integrated the training transfer and the organisational process for the evaluation of literature to develop toolkits that help end-users to promote mental health and well-being in the workplace, increasing job satisfaction.
