Stress is a leading cause of ill health in the workplace. This shortform book analyses, summarises and contextualises research around stress at work.
The book begins by exploring the impact and challenges of technology and the challenging and changing contours and boundaries of the nature of work. Using a behaviour lens, the authors draw on cyberpsychology to illuminate the choices we make to balance life, work and wellbeing. The changing nature of work is analysed, shifting structures and boundaries explored and the stress consequences of such themes as the gig economy and precarious work are also included in the book.
A compelling framework for researchers of work, organisation and psychology, this concise book is also valuable reading for reflective practitioners, seeking to understand the importance of wellbeing in the workplace
