Purpose. This presentation aims at providing insights and discussing challenges with regards to translating evidence from research into meaningful tools for sustaining and promoting employees’ wellbeing. Design/Methodology/Approach/Intervention. Drawing on our experience of collaboration with Verona University, we will elaborate on the processes and communication strategies we adopted to share and make use of data collected from a survey to monitor job demands and resources, along with work engagement, among people working at our company. Results. Experience from our on-going strategy to support employees’ wellbeing by relying on the collaboration with academics suggests that, in order to capitalize on the value of research, it is essential to define a recursive communication channel to translate evidence from research into meaningful information for people at work. Limitations. Our experience cannot be generalized to the entire range of different organizations. Research/Practical Implications. By presenting our experience we aim at providing insights on how effective communication strategies represent a fundamental tool to boost employee wellbeing and motivation at work, based on data and evidence from research. Originality/Value. While research often focuses on the processes through which wellbeing at work unfold and develop, the way through which wellbeing can be sustained by making use of research itself still remains overlooked. This intervention offers a practitioners’ contribution to fill this gap.
