Employee subjective well-being, which contributes to work stability, increases productivity, and in turn improves the performance of both employees and the organization, is critical in modern business organizations for a variety of reasons that affect the performance and sustainability of those organizations, as well as the numerous benefits they achieve.
The purpose of this study is to discover the impact of positive organizational behavior on the subjective well-being of employees in Jordanian tourism industry. The analytical-descriptive methodology was used to attain the study’s goal. The sample consisted of 392 workers of Jordanian tourism organizations (22 companies) within the upper and middle administrative levels, who were chosen using a simple random procedure. The questionnaire that included items to measure the dimensions of independent and dependent variables was distributed to them.
The study concluded that there is a medium level of positive organizational behavior and subjective well-being in the workplace for the study sample. All dimensions of positive organizational behavior (self-efficacy, optimism, hope, and flexibility) have a statistically significant effect on subjective well-being. That is, the higher the level of positive organizational behavior, the higher the subjective well-being of workers.
