This chapter focuses on the concept of subjective well-being (SWB) in organizations. We use the circumplex model of affect as a theoretical framework to distinguish between specific types of work-related subjective well-being, including work engagement, job satisfaction, happiness at work, workaholism, and burnout. In addition, we will link positive types of work-related SWB to job performance. Specific attention is paid to capturing the dynamics of SWB in work settings on a daily basis.
