Abstract [en]

Research has consistently shown that employee health and well-being benefit from a balance between demands and resources at work but also from a balance between work-related efforts and rewards. Such balances are in turn associated with the balance between activation and opportunities for recovery, which are central for long-term health outcomes among employees and their managers. This presentation summarizes findings from a worksite based participatory intervention. The intervention uses a survey-feedback design as a basis for dialogue based reflexive workshops. In total, four half-day workshops were carried out over a 2-month period. In the workshops, employees identified the most immediate work environment problems and were asked to develop strategies to improve the balance between various factors at work. In doing this, the intervention aimed to integrate more strongly organizational work environment policies with the planning of regular activities within different work units in the organization. Self-report questionnaire data on work-related factors (e.g., demands and resources), health and well-being (e.g., recovery, self-rated health, subjective health complaints) were collected before the intervention and at a short-time follow-up about eight weeks after the intervention. While health-effects seem unreasonable considering the short follow-up period, preliminary findings suggest that this worksite based participatory organizational intervention may have positive effects on factors relating to the work climate.
