R889 Discovery Miles 8 890 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The health of managers, executives, and business leaders has a massive impact on the performance and prospects of modern organizations. If health problems are not tackled, people become less productive, less effective, and more destructive. It is clear that business leaders and human resource professionals cannot afford to ignore the impact of work-related health issues on company performance. Yet even acknowledging this fact still leaves us with a choice over how to proceed. Should we try to minimize those risks that typically lead to health problems or seek to strengthen executive health? While recognising that identifying health risks is the first step in any preventive health program, Managing Executive Health argues for a positive approach, which emphasizes physical vigour, psychological well-being, spiritual vitality, and ethical integrity. Key issues are illustrated throughout with case studies of high-profile figures from the worlds of business and politics.

In today's difficult global economy, work stress is high, and this stress along with other health factors can affect work productivity, satisfaction, safety, absenteeism, turnover, and even workplace violence. As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to occupational health psychology (OHP) to develop, maintain, and promote the health of employees. This second edition of the Handbook of Occupational Health Psychology reviews the history of OHP; theories and models; causes of work problems and risks; resulting symptoms and disorders; prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies used by practicing professions; and methods of research and evaluation. The chapters have been updated since the first edition was published, and several new chapters have been added addressing cross-cultural issues, leadership, pain and musculoskeletal conditions, substance abuse, and organizational justice. With a comprehensive scope and interdisciplinary approach, this book will interest professionals from a range of specialties, including industrial and organizational psychology, human factors, social psychology, health psychology, clinical psychology, public health, preventive medicine, and industrial engineering.

Preventive Stress Management in Organizations, Second Edition offers a comprehensive framework for creating healthy workplaces. It begins by presenting the transactional relationship between individual and organizational stress. Each individual brings a peculiar pattern of responding to inevitable and necessary demands of work, and many experience psychological, behavioral, and medical forms of stress because of factors related to their work. Individuals and organizations can implement practices to reverse unhealthy stress (distress) and promote eustress, which stimulates growth and vitality. Chapters examine individual and organizational sources of stress and their consequences; methods and instruments for diagnosing organizational and individual stress; ways to redesign work and improve professional relationships; and methods for managing demands and stressors. New findings from positive psychology are woven in. Methods designed to proactively enhance health and performance at work while averting the costs and discomfort of distress are explored and illustrated by examples drawn from healthy organizations. Preventive stress management is a philosophy and set of principles grounded in public health, which organizational leaders and consultants can use to help their organization operate to its fullest potential. The approaches outlined in this book may be implemented by leaders in any organization.

R1,397 Discovery Miles 13 970 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Downsizing is one of the most frequently used business strategies for reducing costs, returning firms to profit or for restructuring businesses following takeovers, mergers and acquisitions. Downsizing measures are also set to become much more prevalent in the public sector as governments seek to restrict levels of public spending. This book is one of the first to provide a thorough study of downsizing from a global perspective. It examines the phenomenon in its entirety, exploring how it is initiated and what the process of downsizing looks like. It also looks at the effects of downsizing at a number of different levels, from the individual (e.g., motivational effects, effects on health and stress levels) to the organizational (e.g., financial outcomes, reputational and productivity outcomes). Written by an international team of experts, the book provides a comprehensive overview of downsizing that examines both the strategic and human implications of this process.

R1,141 Discovery Miles 11 410 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book offers twelve chapters organized into three major sections that address occupational stress and quality of working life. The authors are an internationally renowned team of scholar-research-practitioners who are grounded in applied science and clinical practice. Section 1 includes five chapters that address the organizational and individual costs of occupational stress. The costs are humanitarian and economic; both human suffering and financial burdens are important. Section 2 includes three chapters that focus on ways to mitigate the negative effects of occupational stress. We must help those who are suffering but we must do more by preventing distress where we can and building on positive, strength factors where possible. Section 3 includes four chapters that examine and expand our understanding of work life quality. Work life quality is so important because of the effects it has on workers and leaders, as well as the spillover impact into families and communities. These twelve chapters, highlight both core knowledge and new developments within the rapidly growing field of research on stress and the quality of working life. We believe this information can help to raise awareness of the causes and costs of occupational stress and poor quality of working life. Further, this should provide a challenge, some incentive, and renewed insight for organizations in Brazil and elsewhere to begin thinking about and acting in ways that lead to a less stressful environment for their workforce.

R827 Discovery Miles 8 270 Out of stock

Stress plays a direct or contributing role in seven of the ten leading causes of death in developed nations, including heart disease, strokes, injuries, cancer and chronic liver disease. Although a wide range of health professionals consider themselves to be stress experts, there is no single medical or psychological specialty with particular expertise in stress. For this reason, partnerships including family physicians and mental health professionals often provide the most effective approach to treating stress-related disorders. This handbook offers a concise overview of the psychophysiology of stress, the symptoms of stress-related disorders, the diagnosis of stress and strain, and the preventive management of stress and treatment of strain.
