Abstract Managing well-being at work has so far been quite fragmented, without a well-defined holistic method for promoting health and well-being at work. This article presents a comprehensive tool for this purpose, entitled TEDI, based on the salutogenic approach to health promotion, positive organizational scholarship and a solution-based way of acting. It is founded on participation, commitment, and empowerment. Examples of TEDI pilot implementation in several organizations are provided.
