The aim of the series is to host and disseminate real-world case studies at workplaces with a focus on balancing technical information. Further, the application of a work design framework will propel this series into the literary cross-over of traditional occupational health, safety, or wellbeing, human factors engineering, or organizational sciences, into a design realm like no other series has done. Each case will describe the tools and approaches applied per the Work (Re)Design stages and inform the readers with a complete picture and comprehensive understanding of the what’s and why’s of successful and “failed” attempts to improve the work health, safety, wellbeing, and performance within organizations.
