Abstract:

Explores the implications of using a positive approach as opposed to a stress management one and compares the types of interventions they each require. Some of the interventions described target individuals and their attitudes and behaviours, others target workplace relationships, work units and the wider organisation. Outcomes such as reduced occurrences of smoking, obesity, depression, elevated blood pressure, accidents and workplace injuries, presenteeism, absence and staff turnover are reported. The factors associated with the success of these interventions are identified and advice is given as to how interested individuals and organisations might proceed to develop worksite interventions on their own.
