This webinar will introduce viewers to an evidence-based framework and toolkit for improving worker well-being. The “Work Design for Health” framework updates work redesign principles for the realities of work in the 21st century and maps how to create work environments that foster worker well-being and organizational resilience. The approach shifts the traditional focus from changing individual health behaviors to creating workplace conditions that support employee health and well-being. The audience will also learn about the accompanying Work Design for Health employer toolkit and website that highlights a wide range of promising management practices, tested through research, that illustrate the principles of this approach.
After viewing this webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the “Work Design for Health” framework and how it differs from traditional approaches, including the three principles at the heart of the “Work Design for Health” framework.
2. Create a preliminary plan for designing and implementing a "Work Design for Health" approach.
3. Identify research that supports this evidence-based framework.
