Abstract

Addressing stress at work is a topic that is being added to the agenda of many organizations. There are various sources of stress that could impact an individual. Whether it is personal relationships, physical health concerns, mental health issues or professional relationships at a work, an individual’s productivity will be affected. Employees who work in a project environment are already succumbed to the constraints of time and budget. The topic of employee wellbeing is under research for several years, and there are several solutions available and initiatives implemented within global organizations to enhance their team’s wellbeing. Therefore, there is a need for a project management framework that also take employee wellbeing into consideration. This paper reviews the literature on employee wellbeing and some of the most commonly applied project management frameworks, namely Project Management Institute (PMI), the Association of Project Management (APM) and PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE2). As a result, a practical guideline is proposed to embed employee wellbeing into the project management book of knowledge (PMBOK Guide) of PMI, incorporating three key process and supporting tools and techniques.
