EAWOP Small Group Meeting: When, Where and for Whom are Job Resources Beneficial?

14/15 September, 2015

Job resources, such as job control and supportive workplace relationships, are deemed to be key ingredients to healthy work. Job resources occupy prominent positions in theoretical models of job design and policy approaches to psychologically healthy work. In this meeting, attendees and presenters explored how to advance knowledge and practice, and debated issues such as: how job resources confer benefits in specific micro- and macro-contexts; to reliably identify and explain exceptions to the general rule that job resources confer benefits; to consider the cost-to-benefit ratios of increasing job resources in different contexts so that interventions are both successful and efficient; and to compile theoretically grounded and evidence-based best-practice guidelines for intervention.
