A form of discrimination in the workplace which violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sexual harassment takes two forms: quid pro quo, where the employee must submit to sexual advances in exchange for job benefits or be penalized for refusing; or a hostile environment, where the atmosphere of the workplace is offensive and affects the employee's well-being. Offensive sexual conduct may include unwelcome advances, comments, touching, questions about marital status and sex practices, etc. Both men and women may be aggressors or victims.

Socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population: the contribution of working conditions. (1/1855)

BACKGROUND: The aim was to study the impact of different categories of working conditions on the association between occupational class and self-reported health in the working population. METHODS: Data were collected through a postal survey conducted in 1991 among inhabitants of 18 municipalities in the southeastern Netherlands. Data concerned 4521 working men and 2411 working women and included current occupational class (seven classes), working conditions (physical working conditions, job control, job demands, social support at work), perceived general health (very good or good versus less than good) and demographic confounders. Data were analysed with logistic regression techniques. RESULTS: For both men and women we observed a higher odds ratio for a less than good perceived general health in the lower occupational classes (adjusted for confounders). The odds of a less than good perceived general health was larger among people reporting more hazardous physical working conditions, lower job control, lower social support at work and among those in the highest category of job demands. Results were similar for men and women. Men and women in the lower occupational classes reported more hazardous physical working conditions and lower job control as compared to those in higher occupational classes. High job demands were more often reported in the higher occupational classes, while social support at work was not clearly related to occupational class. When physical working conditions and job control were added simultaneously to a model with occupational class and confounders, the odds ratios for occupational classes were reduced substantially. For men, the per cent change in the odds ratios for the occupational classes ranged between 35% and 83%, and for women between 35% and 46%. CONCLUSIONS: A substantial part of the association between occupational class and a less than good perceived general health in the working population could be attributed to a differential distribution of hazardous physical working conditions and a low job control across occupational classes. This suggests that interventions aimed at improving these working conditions might result in a reduction of socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population.  (+info)

Sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse among university employees: prevalence and mental health correlates. (2/1855)

OBJECTIVES: This study hypothesized that interpersonal workplace stressors involving sexual harassment and generalized workplace abuse are highly prevalent and significantly linked with mental health outcomes including symptomatic distress, the use and abuse of alcohol, and other drug use. METHODS: Employees in 4 university occupational groups (faculty, student, clerical, and service workers; n = 2492) were surveyed by means of a mailed self-report instrument. Cross-tabular and ordinary least squares and logistic regression analyses examined the prevalence of harassment and abuse and their association with mental health status. RESULTS: The data show high rates of harassment and abuse. Among faculty, females were subjected to higher rates; among clerical and service workers, males were subjected to higher rates. Male and female clerical and service workers experienced higher levels of particularly severe mistreatment. Generalized abuse was more prevalent than harassment for all groups. Both harassment and abuse were significantly linked to most mental health outcomes for men and women. CONCLUSIONS: Interpersonally abusive workplace dynamics constitute a significant public health problem that merits increased intervention and prevention strategies.  (+info)

A worksite smoking intervention: a 2 year assessment of groups, incentives and self-help. (3/1855)

Sixty-three companies in the Chicago area were recruited to participate in a worksite smoking cessation program. Participants in each worksite received a television program and newspaper supplement (part of a community-wide media campaign), and one of three conditions: (1) self-help manuals alone (M), (2) self-help manuals and incentives for 6 months (IM) or (3) maintenance manuals, incentives and cognitive-behavioral support groups for 6 months (GIM). Results at the 2 year assessment are examined using a random-effects regression model. In addition, various definitions of quit-rate commonly used in smoking cessation research are explored and the advantages of using a public health approach in the worksite are examined.  (+info)

Impact of the work environment on glycemic control and adaptation to diabetes. (4/1855)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate quantitatively whether the work environments of adults with diabetes relate to the adequacy of metabolic control and/or to the individual's adaptation to diabetes and to explore qualitatively the interactions between an individual's life at work and ways of coping with diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A total of 129 insulin-requiring adults who were employed outside of the home were assessed on a single occasion. They completed two work system measures (The Work Environment Scale and The Work Apgar Scale) and two quality-of-life measures (The Diabetes Quality of Life Scale and The Appraisal of Diabetes Scale). Subjects also participated in a semi-structured interview concerning the interaction of work and diabetes. Glycemic control was assessed by using HbAlc results. Demographic data (age, sex, diabetes type, duration of diabetes, number of diabetes-related medical complications) were gathered from the charts. RESULTS: Concerning glycemic control, neither of the work system measures was a significant predictor of HbAlc. Concerning psychosocial adaptation, supervisor support was found to be a significant predictor of positive appraisal and diabetes-related satisfaction. Involvement and coworker cohesion also predicted aspects of diabetes-related quality of life. Interview themes showed that for a minority (18%), diabetes affected choice of work and that for a majority (60%), diabetes affected relationships at work and raised financial/job concerns (49%). Most adjust their diet, blood glucose testing, and exercise regimen through work-related modifications. CONCLUSIONS: For insulin-treated adults with diabetes, work system variables do not directly relate to glycemic control, but they do relate to psychosocial adaptation. Future work should examine further the specific aspects of the workplace that might affect adaptation, with the goal being to develop worksite interventions that target not only the employee with diabetes but also their supervisors and coworkers.  (+info)

Ergonomic strategies for improving working conditions in some developing countries in Asia. (6/1855)

Ergonomic action is growing in Asia in response to increasing local needs. Recent studies in some developing countries in Asia commonly developed and applied widely-applicable measures for assessing local needs in field conditions including small enterprises and agriculture. For this purpose, carefully examining the actual workplace conditions of the local people was essential. Consequently, a number of field studies could contributed to improving the working conditions of the local people in materials handling, workstation design, work organization and work environment by using available local resources. Building on local capacity and practice, action-oriented ergonomics training has also been developing and spreading into many workplaces. Various non-expert human resources including local government units, trade unions, industrial associations and the agricultural sectors have been mobilized to act as participatory trainers in the action-oriented ergonomic training programmes. Training tools such as action checklists, good local examples and group work dynamics have been developed and applied to such training activities. Learning from local achievements and focusing on locally available resources, ergonomists have facilitated these local action processes by developing action-oriented training tools and training local trainers. It was confirmed that a number of ergonomic improvements could be formulated by the self-help initiative of the local people when participatory action tools and training were provided. Developing flexible and dynamic ergonomic research and training methods to meet the diversifying needs of the local people will continuously be important. Ergonomists' efforts to cover the wider population and workplaces need to be strengthened and accelerated.  (+info)

Process mapping in screening mammography. (7/1855)

Successful screening mammography programs aim to screen large numbers of women efficiently and inexpensively. Development of an effective screening mammography program requires skilled personnel, solid infrastructure, and a robust computer system. A group of physicians, technologists, computer support personnel, and administrators carefully analyzed a growing screening mammography program as a series of steps, starting with the request for the examination and ending with the receipt of a hard-copy consultation. The analysis involved a detailed examination of every step and every possible outcome in the screening process. The information gained through process mapping may be used for identification of systemic and personnel problems, allocation of resources, modification of workplace architecture, and design of computer networks. Process mapping is helpful for those involved in designing and improving screening mammography programs. Viewing a process (i.e., obtaining a screening mammogram) as a series of steps may allow for the identification of inefficient components that may limit growth.  (+info)

Worksite and family education for dietary change: the Treatwell 5-a-Day program. (8/1855)

The National Cancer Institute's '5-a-Day for Better Health Campaign is examining the efficacy of interventions in increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables to five or more servings a day. This paper presents the study design, intervention and baseline survey results of the Treatwell 5-a-Day project, a randomized, controlled worksite-based intervention study. Twenty-two community health centers were randomly assigned to either a Minimal Intervention, Worksite Intervention or Worksite Plus Family Intervention. The Worksite Intervention included participation of employee advisory boards, programs aimed at individual behavior change and programs aimed at changes in the worksite environment. The Worksite Plus Family Intervention incorporated family-focused interventions into the worksite program, including a learn-at-home program, family newsletter, family festival and materials mailings. A self-administered survey was conducted prior to randomization (mean response rate: 87%, n = 1359). Twenty-three percent reported consuming five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Consumption of fruits and vegetables was directly associated with level of household support for healthy eating. The Treatwell 5-a-Day intervention model has the potential to enhance existing worksite-based intervention through incorporation of its family focus, especially given the association of household support with individual eating habits.  (+info)

AU - Doi, Hiroyuki. AU - Kawachi, Ichiro. PY - 2010/5. Y1 - 2010/5. N2 - While the majority of studies of social capital and health have focused on conceptualizing social capital at the geographic level, evidence remains sparse on workplace social capital. We examined the association between workplace social capital and health status among Japanese private sector employees in a cross-sectional study. By employing a two-stage stratified random sampling procedure, 1147 employees were identified from 46 companies in Okayama in 2007. Workplace social capital was measured based on two components; trust and reciprocity. Company-level social capital was based on aggregating employee responses and calculating the proportion of workers reporting mistrust and lack of reciprocity. Multilevel logistic regression analysis was ...
Objectives One reason for health disparities between shift and day workers may be that workplace health promotion does not reach shift workers to the same extent as it reaches day workers. This study aimed to investigate the association between shift work and the availability of and participation in workplace health promotion.. Methods We used cross-sectional questionnaire data from a large representative sample of all employed people in Denmark. We obtained information on the availability of and participation in six types of workplace health promotion. We also obtained information on working hours, ie, fixed day work (reference) and shift work (four categories), psychosocial work factors, and health behaviors. We conducted binary logistic regression analyses both in the total sample (N=7555) and in a sub-sample consisting of job groups with representatives in all shift work categories (N=2064).. Results In the general working population, fixed evening and fixed night workers, and employees ...
With a post-structural approach and an analytical focus on processes of governmentality and biopower, this study is concerned with how discourses of health are contextualized in educational practice and interaction between educators and participants in workplace health promotion (WHP) interventions. Of concern are issues of the discursive production, regulation and representation of power, knowledge and subjects as gendered beings in workplace health promotion interventions. The methods for generating data are participant observation, interviews and gathering of documentation pertaining to four different workplace health promotion nterventions. Based on these data, the thesis offers an analysis of the health discourses drawn on in the interventions and the technologies of power and of the self by which the participants are governed and invited to govern themselves in the name of health. It also asks what practices and positions that thus come to be made available or not to the participants. Two ...

The enormous human and economic costs associated with occupational stress suggest that initiatives designed to prevent and/or reduce employee stress should be high on the agenda of workplace health promotion (WHP) programmes. Although employee stress is often the target of WHP, reviews of job stress interventions suggest that the common approach to combating job stress is to focus on the individual without due consideration of the direct impacts of working conditions on health as well as the effects of working conditions on employees ability to adopt and sustain healthy behaviours. The purpose of the first part of this paper is to highlight the criticisms of the individual approach to job stress and to examine the evidence for developing strategies that combine both individual and organizational-directed interventions (referred to as the comprehensive approach). There is a risk that WHP practitioners may lose sight of the role that they can play in developing and implementing the ...

Employees of the German Federal Ministry of Defense were surveyed at the beginning (January / February 2015) and at the end (June 2015) of the trial phase of workplace health promotion (WHP). Differences in participation of characteristic groups were calculated using Pearsons Chi2-Test and T-Test, chances of participation were estimated using multilevel logistic regression. Employees who reported higher satisfaction with work demand participated more often in health measures (aOR: 1.02, 95%-CI = 1.01, 1.04, p | 0.001). Large amount of variance in participation can be attributed to department level. Participation at WHP varies significantly between settings after controlling for individuals characteristics. Thus, working characteristics should be considered as a decisive factor for WHP effectiveness. There is
1. Why do we need a drug program for Department of the Navy employees? The President, in signing Executive Order 12564 on 15 September 1986, required that all federal agencies implement a program to achieve a drug-free workplace. Even without such a requirement, achieving a drug-free America is one of our nations highest priorities. In line with that, the Department of the Navy has a compelling obligation to eliminate illegal drug use by its employees due to its national defense responsibilities and the sensitive nature of its work.. 2. What regulatory requirements governed the development of the Department of the Navy Drug-Free Workplace Program? Executive Order 12564 requires employees to refrain from the use of illegal drugs on and off duty and directs agencies to establish plans for achieving a drug-free workplace..

A broad and thorough workplace survey forms the foundation for occupational health care functions at the workplace. The purpose of the workplace survey is for the occupational health care service to investigate the circumstances of the workplace and the work being done and to evaluate their health impacts on employees. In the workplace survey, the occupational health care service also assesses physical and psychosocial work loads, work arrangements and the risks of accidents and violence.. The workplace survey report includes proposals on how to improve working conditions and promote work capacity. The workplace survey report contains information on specific hazards causing risk of illness and on action the employer should take to eliminate or minimise those hazards. It also outlines the necessary health examinations to be conducted.. In addition to a basic workplace survey, the occupational health care service may also perform targeted workplace surveys, for instance on work ergonomics or ...
Objectives Both shift work and other work environment factors have been shown to be related to heart disease. This study examined whether shift work is associated with other work environment factors related to heart disease in a random sample of the population. If so, shift work could be acting as a proxy for work environment differences.. Methods Data on 5940 employees in the Danish Work Environment Cohort Study from 1990 were reanalyzed. The information included work schedules [permanent day work, irregular workhours (including morning work), 2-shift or fixed evening and 3-shift or fixed night], length of workweek, physical factors (noise, heat, dust, passive smoking, walking, standing and monotonous repetitive tasks), and psychosocial factors (including demands and control dimensions, social support, conflicts and job insecurity).. Results At least 1 group of shift workers had a higher prevalence of nearly every unfavorable work environment factor investigated. Exceptions were dust exposure ...
Abstract: The traditional criminal justice response to prostitution and drug crime is expensive and ineffective. Behaviorally based drug abuse treatments such as the therapeutic workplace may help improve outcomes if incorporated into diversion to treatment strategies in the context of criminal justice. In the therapeutic workplace people with problem drug use can work and earn wages contingent on provision of drug free urine samples. The purpose of this study was to assess the therapeutic workplace as a means of increasing drug abstinence and decreasing HIV risk behaviors in women arrested for prostitution. Participants (N=38) were opiate dependent adults arrested for prostitution whose cases were being processed in early resolution court. All participants were either enrolled in methadone or buprenorphine treatment prior to enrolling in this study. Participants were randomly assigned to usual care or usual care plus the therapeutic workplace. Drug abstinence contingencies were implemented in ...
Insufficient PA has been shown to cluster with other CVD risk factors including insufficient fruit and vegetable intake, overweight, increased serum cholesterol concentrations and elevated blood pressure. This paper describes the development of Working on Wellness (WOW), a worksite intervention program incorporating motivational interviewing by wellness specialists, targeting employees at risk. In addition, we describe the evaluation the effectiveness of the intervention among employees at increased risk for cardiovascular disease. The intervention mapping (IM) protocol was used in the planning and design of WOW. Focus group discussions and interviews with employees and managers identified the importance of addressing risk factors for CVD at the worksite. Based on the employees preference for individual counselling, and previous evidence of the effectiveness of this approach in the worksite setting, we decided to use motivational interviewing as part of the intervention strategy. Thus, as a cluster

Proquest subject headings: Security management; Risk assessment. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that in 1992, 750 employees were killed in the workplace, in 1993 that number rose to 1063, 1994s total was 1471, although 1995 showed a slight decrease, 1262 homicides in the workplace, it is still a serious problem. Homicide is the third leading cause of workplace fatalities and is the leading cause of death for women in the workplace. Last year, two million people were physically attacked in the workplace, six million were threatened, and 16 million were harassed. The problem is even more serious since only half of workplace victimizations are reported. Under the 1974 Health and Safety Act and the 1992 Health and Safety At Work Regulations, companies are legally required to assess and provide a safe work environment. This research provides typical workplace killer profiles, characteristics of disgruntled employees, motivations for violent actions and factors ...
Introduction. Social capital, operationalized as perceived trust, reciprocity and recognition has in earlier research shown to be important for employees´ job satisfaction and to health care staffs´ engagement in clinical improvements of patient safety and quality of care as well as job satisfaction, health and wellbeing.

Research findings shows that leadership has great importance to staffs´ health and wellbeing, and affects a number of factors in the work environment factors as job satisfaction and work engagement. If and how leadership is associated with social capital is rarely described in previous research. However the few studies performed indicate that there are associated correlations between leadership and social capital, and leadership quality and social capital.

There are no federal laws that directly and comprehensively protect against abuses in the gathering or use of genetic information in the workplace. A few protections exist incidentally under federal laws enacted to address other types of workplace discrimination. The incidental federal protections against workplace discrimination based on genetic information that do exist are narrow in scope and, in large measure, not well established. They are not sufficient to provide Americans with adequate protection against genetic discrimination in the workplace. States continue to enact legislation in response to growing concern over the specter of genetic discrimination in the workplace. Existing state laws, however, differ in coverage, protections afforded, and enforcement schemes. Federal leadership is necessary to ensure that all workers are protected against discrimination based on genetic information.. Federal Laws The only federal law that directly addresses the issue of genetic discrimination is ...

BACKGROUND: This individual patient data (IPD) meta-analysis aimed to investigate socioeconomic inequalities in effectiveness on healthy behavior of, and compliance to, workplace health promotion programs. METHODS: Dutch (randomized) controlled trials were identified and original IPD were retrieved and harmonized. A two-stage meta-analysis was conducted where linear mixed models were performed per study (stage 1), after which individual study effects were pooled (stage 2). All models were adjusted for baseline values of the outcomes, age and gender. Intervention effects were assessed on physical activity, diet, alcohol use, and smoking. Also, we assessed whether effects differed between participants with low and high program compliance and. All analyses were stratified by socioeconomic position. RESULTS: Data from 15 studies (n = 8709) were harmonized. Except for fruit intake (beta: 0·12 [95% CI 0·08 0·15]), no effects were found on health behaviors, nor did these effects differ across ...

Adverse psychosocial work environments may lead to impaired mental health, but it is still a matter of conjecture if demonstrated associations are causal or biased. We aimed at verifying whether poor psychosocial working climate is related to increase of redeemed subscription of antidepressant medication. Information on all antidepressant drugs (AD) purchased at pharmacies from 1995 through 2006 was obtained for a cohort of 21,129 Danish public service workers that participated in work climate surveys carried out during the period 2002-2005. Individual self-reports of psychosocial factors at work including satisfaction with the work climate and dimensions of the job strain model were obtained by self-administered questionnaires (response rate 77,2%). Each employee was assigned the average score value for all employees at his/her managerial work unit [1094 units with an average of 18 employees (range 3-120)]. The risk of first-time AD prescription during follow-up was examined according to level of

Passive smoking is linked with cancer, heart disease, respiratory illness 1 2 and is the leading source of indoor airpollution.3 In the United States, passive smoking has been linked to the deaths of at least 53 000 non-smokers each year, about one non-smoker for each eight smokers that tobacco kills. 2 4 By August 2001, 234 US communities had enacted local ordinances that required all workplaces to be completely smoke-free (185 communities included restaurants; American Nonsmokers Rights Foundation, local ordinance database), and many businesses implemented voluntary policies creating smoke-free workplaces. By 1998-9,69% of US workers employed indoors outside the home had smoke-free workplaces.5. Smoke-free workplaces not only protect non-smokers, they also create an environment that encourages smokers to cut back6 or quit. Since as early as the 1980s the tobacco industry has recognised that smoke-free workplaces have a major effect on cigaretteconsumption.7 In 1992 Phillip Morris Tobacco ...
The importance of organizations for understanding differences in the working conditions and health of employees is often emphasized but rarely explored empirically. The general aim of this thesis is to describe organizational characteristics of workplaces, and to assess their impact on the psychosocial working conditions and health of employees. In modern working life, it is assumed that employees working conditions and health are affected by a general transformation of workplaces from bureaucracy to post-bureaucracy.. The organizational data used are based on structured interviews with managers at workplaces in different types of operations in mid-Sweden, whereas the individual data consist of a questionnaire to all employees working in the participating workplaces, resulting in a dataset of 90 workplaces and 4306 individuals. Descriptive analysis was carried out for comparison of organizational characteristics in different types of operations, while multilevel analysis was applied to ...
Banning smoking in the workplace and increasing taxes on cigarettes have discouraged teens and young adults from taking up smoking, according to a study by researchers at UC San Francisco and UC Merced. The study, published Sept. 8 in JAMA Pediatrics, used data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997, which was established to study the health, education, attitudes and lifestyle habits of close to 4,000 respondents - representative of the U.S. population - over the course of 11 years. The researchers found that a 100 percent smoke-free environment reduced the odds of taking up smoking by one third. During the period studied, smoke-free laws at the state, county and city level were becoming more commonplace and comprehensive, and cigarette taxes had increased. In 1997, no respondent had a 100 percent probability of being covered by a smoke-free workplace law; by 2007, smoke-free workplace laws were in effect for 27.3 percent of respondents. The probability ...

Workplace Health: Are you a desk potato?. When was the last time you tilled a field or washed your clothes by hand? Its true: Canadians dont do much physical labour anymore. We now have machines doing most of the hard labour. In fact, many occupations involve standing at retail desks or working at computers where e-mail and other communication make it virtually unnecessary to do any moving. Before machines did most of our physical labour, we were getting activity throughout our whole workday, says Heart and Stroke Foundation spokesperson and workplace activity expert Nancy Dubois. Now, we have engineered physical activity out of our lives.

Mate, youre on another day at work. You dont want to complain because you need to make a living, so you went to work. As the hours went by, you thought nothing out of the ordinary would happen. Then with a flash of a second, you fell down the stairs, for example. And now youre injured at work. What can you do?

They need compensation for workplace injury management in case they are hurt from performing a task or two at work. If your company has ...

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the workplace is an important setting for health protection, health promotion and disease prevention programs. On average, Americans working full-time spend more than one-third of their day, five days per week at the workplace. The following information was taken from the CDC Workplace website:. While employers have a responsibility to provide a safe and hazard-free workplace, they also have abundant opportunities to promote individual health and foster a healthy work environment for more than 159 million workers in the United States (Accessed US Bureau of Labor Statistics April 12, 2016).. The use of effective workplace programs and policies can reduce health risks and improve the quality of life for American workers.. Maintaining a healthier workforce can lower direct costs such as insurance premiums and workers compensation claims. It will also positively impact many indirect costs such as absenteeism and worker productivity.1, ...
It is hardly surprising that with so many news stories reporting workplace harassment and sexual misconduct, employers are revisiting how they tackle…
Comparability to previous studies is limited, as most studies have relied on cross-sectional designs and self-reported medication. However, our results are in accordance with those from an earlier cross-sectional study, which reported an association between workplace bullying and self-reported psychotropic medication among French employees.7 Observing bullying was also associated with psychotropic medication in that earlier study.. Some other, mainly cross-sectional, studies examining the associations between workplace bullying or conflicts at work with self-reported use of sleep-induced drugs, tranquilisers, antidepressants and sedatives have also shown similar associations with ours, suggesting adverse consequences of earlier and current bullying or conflicts at work for psychotropic medication.1 ,8-10 ,26 ,28 ,29 However, not all these studies have focused explicitly on workplace bullying, and the measurement of psychotropic medication has been limited and mainly based on single self-reported ...

April 02, 2018. As human resource professionals strive to insure a safe and inclusive workplace for all employees, they should note that some harmful bullying behaviors that arent technically unlawful harassment can still be addressed in a workplace civility policy.. Bullying is generally defined as unwelcome behavior that occurs over a period of time and is meant to harm someone who feels powerless to respond. Bullying may or may not constitute unlawful harassment. Bullying is actionable under federal law only when the basis for it is tied to a protected category, such as age, disability, race, religion, or sex. So, an employee who is mean to everyone might not be engaging in unlawful conduct. But that doesnt mean it must be tolerated in the workplace. Bullies cancreatemorale problems and otherworkplace issues. Employers can have codes of conduct that address respect in the workplace and hold employees accountable if they do not treat others with respect.. Employees who are victims of ...

As the Digital Age advances and technology takes over more jobs, workers must get better at those human skills computers cant do. They must excel at critical thinking, innovative thinking, collaborating and emotionally engaging with others in the creation and delivery of products and services. Most of all, one must excel at continuously learning…and unlearning…and relearning. I call this last piece Hyper-Learning. Does your workplace nurture these skills and the Hyper-Learning that powers them? Or does it do exactly the opposite?. You must create a workplace environment that enables the behaviors that will result in the higher-order human cognitive and emotional performance that the smart technology cant do well. In other words, the workplace must enable people to think, to manage their egos and emotions, to listen, and to emotionally engage with others in positive ways that result in high-quality collaboration. In the Digital Age, people will need to bring their Best Selves to ...

NEW YORK - Expansion of legalized marijuana use for medicinal and/or recreational purposes figures to compound an already complicated web of management and workers compensation liability issues for employers.. Since California became the first state to permit the sale and possession of medicinal marijuana in 1996, 22 other states and the District of Columbia have passed similar legislation.. More recently, recreational marijuana use has been legalized in four states - Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Colorado - as well as Washington, D.C.. As a result, employers with operations in states where marijuana prohibitions have been relaxed or vacated are challenged to enforce workplace anti-drug policies, experts said during Business Insurances 2015 Risk Management Summit in New York.. Marijuana in the workplace is not going to be easy to deal with for any employer, said Paul Millus, of counsel at Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein P.C. in New York. It still has no accepted use as far as the federal ...
Diagnostically speaking, psychopathy has been most closely represented as Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) since the DSM-III, with very little change in DSM-IV. The criteria for ASPD, however, are inadequate for indexing the full psychopathy syndrome (Hare, 1996), which is a much more useful construct to consider in workplace settings. The DSM-IV ASPD criteria are heterogeneous and reflect non-specific behavioral deviance rather than the affective and interpersonal characteristics representative of psychopathy. Of focal importance to our topic, the diagnostic criteria for ASPD heavily emphasize criminal behavior and are likely to be less useful in characterizing the non-criminal, or successful variants of psychopathy that are more applicable in the workplace setting.. The DSM-5 trait model was ultimately relegated to Section III of the manual (Emerging Measures and Models) and the categorical system of classifying personality disorders from the DSM-IV was retained. Delaying full ...
Results of regression analysis in predicting work-based identity by job demands and job resources. The results for job demands and job resources were similar when using two random split samples to the full sample for work-based identity.. Discussion. The study aimed to make a contribution towards the understanding of identification, and thus perhaps gain more understanding on the dedication dimension of work engagement. A further aim of this study is to establish whether the JD-R model that has been used to predict work engagement, can predict work-based identity. The study makes an important contribution by comparing both work-based identity and work engagement as a criterion. The results of the study make an important theoretical contribution in this respect as no results were reported in previous studies.. Main findings. In terms of the first research objective to compare overall work engagement, dedication (subscale of work engagement) only and work-based identity, regression analysis was ...
