This chapter gives an overview of evidence on the association between Workplace Innovation (WPI), company performance and quality of working life. We identify which research approaches are the most promising for WPI, and aim to understand why not all companies invest in WPI. The analysis consists of a literature review of current research evidence on WPI. There is not one research result that provides a final result for the hypothesised association. However, the large amount of partial results make a positive association between WPI, company performance and quality of working life quite likely. It is concluded that more high-quality research is needed on the realization of workplace innovation. Improved data collection and data analysis methods will provide organisations with a more solid framework for choosing which practices increase organisational performance, and quality of working life. Also the complicated nature of WPI models hinder the diffusion of WPI, organisations cannot just copy each other’s innovations.
