While organizational level interventions are generally recommended and the interest in conducting such interventions is increasing, few descriptions of how researchers may develop and implement such interventions exist. In this book chapter we present the PIOP (Participatory Interventions from an Organizational Perspective) approach. It is an intervention framework that aims to improve employee well-being through changes in the way work is designed, organized and managed. Building on the job demands-resources model, and cognitive appraisal, conservation of resources, job crafting, and fit theories, an approach has been developed that focuses on building employees’ resources through participatory processes. In this chapter, we describe the five phases in the PIOP approach and describe how participation is ensured in each phase. The five phases comprise: Initiation, screening, action planning, implementation and evaluation.
