The organisations strive to excel in the present competitive environment with continuous learning, upgradation of skills, and ensuring better capabilities compare to competitors (Akdere and Egan, 2020). These changes make the organisations more competitive in nature, and this adds the importance of wellbeing of stakeholders in learning organisations(de Fátima Nery,2020) . Well-being can be referred as a subjective term, which describes people’s happiness, the fulfillment of wishes, satisfaction, abilities and task accomplishments (Diener, 2009). Though wellbeing was an interesting area for both researchers and practitioners, during the COVID-19 scenario, the concept of ‘wellbeing’ got immense attention and widely discussed as rapid changes were adopted in the organizations (Tuzovic and Kabadayi, 2021). However, these continuous changes in the learning organizations accounted for less contributions towards wellbeing in this area. Moreover, the structural changes, work environment, individual behaviour and such a lot other aspects contribute to the wellbeing factors of the learning organization. 

The special issue will be significant to the practitioners and policy makers within academic institutions allowing them to understand how wellbeing can be explained in the learning organizations. The guest editors invites both theoretical and empirical works on wellbeing in learning organisations. Case studies, survey research, qualitative studies, literature reviews and conceptual papers on the following topics (list only tentative) can been deemed suitable for the special issue.
