This study reports on findings from the restoration of Maungatautari Ecological Island Reserve, New Zealand. Twenty-one farming workplaces were affected by the restoration process. Findings highlight how an enhanced workplace context, via the restoration process, aided individual wellbeing in terms of developing meaning and social connectivity in previously isolated work places. The findings lend support to the notion that human resource academics and practitioners may find the contributions of positive psychology aid in enhancing meaning and social connectivity at work, leveraging workplace and employee potential and wellbeing.
