  • Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to advance the literature on thriving by examining its influence on innovation in organizations. We posited positive linkage between employee thriving and innovative behaviour at workplace. The study adopted survey method to test the hypotheses. Data was collected from a sample of 223 employees working in service sector. As hypothesized, results suggest that the experience of thriving at work leads to employees engaging in innovative work behaviour. The results also suggest that amongst the two dimensions of thriving ie learning and vitality, learning opportunities is a better predictor of innovative work behaviour.
