Recent research on green workplaces has shown that it is advantageous for organizations to enhance green-related competencies to improve environmental performance and empower employees to engage in healthy behaviors. This study examines the impact of green knowledge and awareness (GKA) and environmental concerns (EC) on the positive health behavior of employees (PHBE) in the Saudi healthcare sector, with the moderating effect of employee well-being (EW). 333 employees of healthcare companies were surveyed to achieve the desired outcomes and meet the project's goals. The empirical findings demonstrated that EC positively influences employees' health behaviors. GKA was discovered to have a significant and negative effect on PHBE. EW effectively moderated the relationships between the independent and dependent variables. The results cast light on developing a green work environment effectively to motivate employees to engage in healthy behaviors and formulate an eco-friendly workplace. This study contributes to the existing literature by analyzing EC and GKA as the significant determinants of a green work environment for health behavior, focusing on EW. In addition, it provides policymakers and the top management of the healthcare industry with valuable practical implications for achieving optimal positive employee health behavior.
