This research project investigated a digital workplace intervention based on team coaching and social network visualisation. The investigation was carried out through four studies. Study 1 was a systematic literature review with a realist synthesis approach about workplace digital interventions at multiple levels, highlighting the need for more research about group-level digital workplace interventions. Study 2 was a qualitative needs assessment exercise that verified the fit between the targeted organisations and the selected intervention. Following the tailored implementation of the intervention, Study 3 analysed recipients’ positive perceptions of intervention characteristics, with usability and integrity being appreciated the most, and acceptability being appreciated the least. While the intervention was considered usable and recipients felt valued during sessions, training did not fully meet their expectations. Also, recipients’ perceptions did not change from second to fourth session, suggesting they remained stably satisfied with the intervention over time. Finally, Study 4 tested two relevant Context-Mechanism-Outcome (CMO) configurations and suggested that teams implementing action plans developed during training might need less support from immediate managers to coordinate collective efforts and accomplish collective performance. Moreover, peer support towards training transfer was confirmed as a relevant contextual factor contributing to intervention effectiveness. Overall, this multifaceted and complex research project offers a nuanced examination of team-level digital interventions within the contemporary workplace, unveiling valuable insights and opportunities for further refinement and application.
