WEBINAR: Organizing Work to Promote Health, Well-being and Productivity
About this course
How can work be organized to promote health, well-being, productivity and efficiency? A recent literature review summarizes and describes current research on the organization of work (including organizational models) contributing to health and well-being, efficiency and productivity in work organizations. The review was carried out on behalf of Mynak, the Swedish Agency for Work Environment Expertise, and focuses mainly on the Swedish but also Nordic context.
In this webinar, the authors of the literature review present their results and discuss the implications of these. After the presentation, the webinar is open for questions from the audience.
