Based on the concept of occupational health psychology, the purpose of this study is to explore the relationships between well-being and job performance, perceived organizational support and well-being. In addition, considering individual differences in work attitudes, job satisfaction and organizational commitment are also selected and examined as possible mediating factors. The methodology of this research was mainly a questionnaire survey. Eventually, 477 valid samples were produced to each questionnaire by the targeted teachers from public elementary schools in Changhwa County, Taiwan. Regression analysis and hierarchical regression analysis shows that perceived organizational support has positive influence on well-being, well-being also has positive influence on job performance. Moreover, well-being mediates the relationship between perceived organizational support and job performance, work attitude mediates the relationship between perceived organizational support and well-being, also mediates the relationship between well-being and job performance. Consequently, to put the findings into managerial practices, we suggest that it is important for school administrative unit to pay close attention to teachers well-being, as well as job performance. By means of designing appropriate welfare systems or group activities in organizations to enhance teachers’perception of organizational support, teachers well-being, and moreover, their job performance would be improved as well. The results benefit both teachers and administration. Besides, to positively increase the degree of job satisfaction and organizational commitment would reinforce the relationship between well-being and job performance.
