B-School Faculty, Covid-19, Employee Well-Being, India, Psychological, Social, Subjective, Subjective Happiness, Workplace


The traditional education industry has undergone rapid changes to keep learning alive and unaffected during the pandemic. There was a lot of uncertainty and fear among the teachers as they had to change the pedagogy to suit the current requirements. Many studies in the past revealed that the performance of teachers is dependent on their well-being. This is an empirical study wherein primary details were collected from B-school faculty working in various B-schools in India. To analyze the effect of well-being on subjective happiness two instruments were used. Employee well-being was measured using a scale consisting of 33 items and four core dimensions such as psychological, social, workplace, and subjective well-being items. A self-evaluation scale on The Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS) was used to measure the subjective happiness of B-school faculty. The questionnaire was administered to B-school faculty. The analysis revealed that psychological, social, and subjective well-being had an effect on the happiness of B-school faculty, but workplace well-being did not have any effect on subjective happiness as most of the B-school faculty were trying to sustain the pandemic and get adjusted to the rapid changes. They did not have many expectations from their employer as they were amidst fear and uncertainty.
