Event description

Description

ECU's School of Business and Law warmly invites you to ECU Business Flashlight, a regular forum for researchers and practitioners to engage in collaborative dialogue with industry and government on relevant issues in business and management.

Associate Professor Hadrian Djajadikerta, Associate Dean Research at the School of Business and Law



Promoting healthy and productive work in the workplace of the future

There is considerable evidence that psychosocial risks have negative impacts on employee engagement and productivity due to their influence on mental health and depression, psychological distress and absenteeism. Psychosocial risk factors include aspects of work organisation that are a result of human action and have the potential to cause psychological harm. Changes in the nature of work arising from technological advancement, globalisation, demographic shifts and a 24/7 culture have potential to increase the risk of psychological harm to workers. In this forum, two academics and a psychologist discuss the problem of psychosocial risk, and suggest some ways organisations can develop healthy work through their management approach.

Programme:
