AbstractManagers’ mental health is increasingly a subject of concern. However, organizational interventions to reduce stress and promote mental health do not target managers, but rather employees. Numerous studies report a link between supervisory behaviors and subordinates’ mental health at work, and suggest that developing managers’ behavior is a promising avenue in enhancing subordinates’ mental health at work. Nonetheless, the literature has neglected the role and behaviors of subordinates i...

Adapted study designs use process evaluation to incorporate a measure of intervention exposure and create an artificial control and intervention groups. Taking into account exposure levels to interventions combines process and outcome evaluation and strengthens the design of the study when exposure levels cannot be controlled. This study includes longitudinal data (two assessments) with added process measures at time 2 gathered from three complex participatory intervention projects in Canada in ...

AbstractIn this paper, occupational safety and health in small businesses is considered from the standpoint of relations between small business employers, workers and occupational safety and health practitioners. Quebec practitioners note that occupational safety and health risks are significant and not as well controlled in small businesses, and that this situation is not formally recognised in the occupational safety and health system. While small business employers and workers complain about ...

La sante et de la securite du travail (SST) dans les petites entreprises (PE) n’est pas formellement documentee au Quebec faute de statistiques en fonction de la taille des entreprises. Les intervenants en SST rapportent toutefois que les travailleurs sont exposes a des risques importants et mal maitrises. Des entrevues avec des patrons et des employes de six PE manufacturieres et avec des intervenants externes en SST sont utilisees pour decrire et expliquer les pratiques de prevention en rappor...

From a case-study based on an analysis model, which takes into account four levels of explanation (personal, interpersonal, group and organizational), and includes the study of the interactions between these different levels, this report puts forward six observations: (1) the importance of performing the analysis on several levels, (2) the existence within harassment situations of two types of process (victimizing and conflictual), (3) the fact that these processes can co-exist at different leve...

From our work in the field, autonomy and participative decision making come up as a core positive aspect of work, as this marketing executive reflects. I have 15 years of experience as a marketing specialist. I’ve had to deal with big clients and multi-million dollar ad campaigns. My expertise was recognized by my former boss. Since the new one arrived, I’m less and less involved in decision making and I have to check my decisions with my boss. I have the impression of being poorly used and that...

Beyond the facts, evidence, advice and examples we have presented so far, how can we ensure that positive changes are made to the working conditions of employees and managers? What are the final recommendations for going from words to action? Real-world action should not be improvised.

After visiting a call center to introduce practices for better recognition of its 250 employees, we were told by one: “This is the first time in 15 years on the job that a vice-president has come and sat down with me for an hour to get a better understanding of what I do! He was nice and showed interest in my work. He saw it wasn’t easy to act on customer requests. His visit made me rethink my opinion of the bosses and my perception of the organization. I’m not the only one. Most saw his visit a...

In Modern Times, Charlie Chaplin depicted a worker totally submitted to the pace of production, as set by the factory boss. Does this story belong to the past? Apparently not. Today, workloads are getting heavier throughout the world. People report they are overwhelmed by work and lack the time to complete one or more tasks, projects or initiatives. The day is over before everything has been done, and we tell each other we need a little less work and far more employees. Our children are fed up s...

Work has always been part of life, but for some time now it seems to be getting increasingly difficult to strike a healthy balance, and to mark the boundary between work and personal life. For many individuals, work has become their lives. Ask yourself: is it normal to devote more time and energy to work than to your family or your own needs? A 1999 Health Canada study states that 40 percent of all Canadians say they experience a high level of conflict between work and personal life, and that be...
