The relationship between organizational health and Employee Interpersonal Relations

Organizational health and employee interpersonal relations are two important factors that can significantly impact the success of an organization. Organizational health refers to the overall well-being of an organization, including its culture, leadership, and management practices [24]. On the other hand, employee interpersonal relations refer to the extent to which employees interact and communicate with each other in the workplace [29]. Research suggests that there is a positive relationship between organizational health and employee interpersonal relations. For instance, a study by Fløvik et al. (2018) found that organizational changes can have a negative impact on employee mental health, including clinically relevant mental distress [26]. This suggests that when an organization is not healthy, it can negatively impact employee mental health, which in turn can negatively impact employee interpersonal relations.


Moreover, research suggests that organizational support for employee health can positively impact employee commitment to the organization and job performance [25]. A study by Xiu et al. (2019) found that employees' perceptions of organizational support for employee health (OSEH) are positively related to employees' commitment to the organization and job performance [25]. This suggests that when an organization supports employee health, it can positively impact employee commitment to the organization, which in turn can positively impact employee interpersonal relations.


Furthermore, research suggests that organizational communication can attenuate the negative effects associated with job insecurity on employee attitudes, behaviors, and physical health [27]. A study by Jiang et al. (2013) found that high job insecurity is related to lower job satisfaction, more workplace accidents, and more health complaints [27]. However, effective organizational communication can help to buffer these negative effects.


In addition, research suggests that participation in workplace health promotion programs can be influenced by organizational characteristics as well as health-related characteristics of employees [28]. A study by Sloan et al. (1988) found that participation in a workplace health promotion program may be influenced as much by organizational characteristics as by health-related characteristics of employees [28]. This suggests that when an organization promotes workplace health, it can positively impact employee interpersonal relations.


In conclusion, research suggests that there is a positive relationship between organizational health and employee interpersonal relations. Organizational health can be improved by promoting a positive organizational culture, effective leadership, and management practices. Employee interpersonal relations can be improved by promoting effective communication, supporting employee health, and promoting workplace health. By improving both organizational health and employee interpersonal relations, organizations can increase their chances of success and achieve their goals and objectives.
