Redesigning Work to Improve the Health of Workers: The Role of Supervisors

Bringing supervisors and managers directly into the dialogue about redesigning and restructuring work is critical, as supervisors are the linking pins/vehicles through which most organizational change initiatives are effectively implemented.

I will also address more general workplace supports and their impact on employee health and well-being. Furthermore, I will discuss how changing the workplace environment impacts health and well-being, introducing the concepts of Occupational Health Psychology and Total Worker Health.
