Ethics and Health at Work
This project is conducted in association with the CRITEOS Research Centre for Work, Health and Organizational Effectiveness.
The goal of the project is to develop ethical strategies and approaches that promote personal health at work.
Higher levels of education, the increasing complexity of social relationships within businesses and the development of manufacturing and communication technologies have all made great contributions to the evolution of work. However, the effects of this evolution are becoming painfully obvious.
The relationship between work, organizational effectiveness and personal health needs to be examined in the context of the 21st century.
For example, more and more managers are having a hard time controlling costs associated with absenteeism – and many believe that a large part of the problem can be attributed to mental health issues in the workforce.
Overall, greater numbers of private enterprise and public organizations are facing labor problems related to health management.
