Work and Stress A Research Overview
Stress is a leading cause of ill health in the workplace. This shortform book analyses, summarizes 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, organization and psychology, this concise book is also valuable reading for reflective practitioners, seeking to understand the importance of well-being in the workplace.
An excellent and powerful book, which is of pivotal interest for all students, researchers, academics and practitioners on an international scale. The ideas are novel, thought provoking and the material makes scholars re-address issues, and realign our thoughts to new thematic areas and possibilities in our field.
