We highlight the added value of the temporal perspective in the study of employee well-being for theory development and organizational practice. First, we explain why and how the study of temporal dynamics adds value over static approaches to employee well-being. We review empirical studies that adopt a dynamic perspective, and explicate what we learned from this complementary approach regarding the processes that explain well-being at work. To answer the “what’s next” question, we take a multilevel perspective and try to better incorporate temporality in the study of work-related well-being in order to understand how changes across levels of analysis of different dynamism may cause changes in employee wellness. We discuss novel methodological approaches (e.g., shortitudinal studies) that have value for future studies of temporality at different levels of analysis. Finally, we discuss the implications of our approach for (research in) organizational practice.
