Thriving at work: An investigation of the independent and joint effects of vitality and learning on employee health

Thriving at work has been defined as employees’ joint sense of vitality and learning. Based on the socially embedded model of thriving at work, we examine several competing operationalizations of thriving at work. We hypothesize effects of (a) composite thriving, (b) separate vitality and learning scores, and (c) the interaction between vitality and learning, and we explore effects of (d) the congruence between vitality and learning on self-rated physical and mental health.
