Current working life is turbulent making maintaining well-being at work challenging. This turbulence necessitates working organisations and their managers to be more sensitive and agile. Managers must understand the human role in technical and organisational systems. The aim of this research is to come up with a description of aspects that influence well-being at work that will be applicable for different types of work places. The research is conducted by interviewing experts, currently working as researchers, consultants and managers, both in private and public organisations. According to the results of this research, well-being at work can be divided into five different aspects: employee, work, work community, management, and external factors. The emphasis on these aspects varies due to changes in external business environment and internal working community. Hence, there is a need for managers to react accordingly.
