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.

Nonetheless, the literature has neglected the role and behaviors of subordinates i...

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 ...

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...

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!

I’m not the only one. Most saw his visit a...
