  • Despite the increasing importance that companies currently place on employee wellness, few studies have explored the impact of wellness on individual and team performance in the workplace. Drawing on the broaden-and-build theory, we hypothesize that wellness intention, wellness leadership, and wellness climate influence the performance of both individuals and teams. We tested our hypotheses using data collected from 495 employees of 81 teams in 11 Korean companies. Our analysis indicates that wellness leadership and wellness climate are meaningful interventions between perceived wellness and performance. Wellness intention did not impact perceived wellness. However, the interaction between wellness intention and wellness leadership impacted perceived wellness. Wellness climate negatively moderated the relationship between perceived wellness and performance.
