Creating healthy and positive workplaces: keynote presentation
2014 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
Over the last decades an increasing body of research has shown that working conditions are decisive for mental and physical health as well as for work attitudes and behavior. A number of influential models suggest that balance at work is an important prerequisite for employee well-being, satisfaction and motivation at work. One typical example concerns the balance between demands at work and the resources needed to perform one’s tasks, but also the balance between efforts and rewards, as well as between work and recovery, is important. This presentation addresses how working conditions may contribute to healthy workplaces and presents results from a worksite based participatory intervention project aimed at promoting a sustainable and healthy working life for employees in the Swedish public sector.
