This book presents research on the determinants of workers’ health (physical and mental well-being) and the organization’s health (performance and culture). It addresses the impact of psychosocial working conditions on workers’ well-being, and their performance, productivity, innovation, and morale at work.
This book is aimed at professionals, postgraduate students, scientists, and practitioners in the fields of work and health psychology, management, occupational health and safety, and human resource management.
Overall, the entire monograph is devoted to a very important sphere of functioning of the organization as a whole, but it also concerns the perspective of individual employees. Each article provides the reader with a broad and well-established knowledge that can be interesting and useful for both employers and employees at different levels of the organization. With respect to the subject of the monograph and its content, it will undoubtedly be helpful to psychologists working in organizations, and managers, but it may also be useful to other employees. Given the scientific approach to the topics, it will also be an interesting reading for academics, for example in the field of psychology, management science, sociology, pedagogy, but also other social sciences, or medical and health sciences.
