Health and productivity have a complex interdependence in the modern workplace. As the nature of work changes, it becomes crucially important for effective management to redefine productivity in a way that takes into account the health of workers. In this conference volume, experts from the biomedical, social and behavioral sciences review current knowledge of the complex interrelationship between health and productivity in the workplace. The book places concern for the worker's health in a social and economic context, examines changing inputs to the workplace such as technology and new lifestyles, describes the physical nature of the work environment and its psychosocial aspects, and concludes with a discussion of management for improved health and productivity.
