Special Issue "Healthy Work Environments"
A special issue of Administrative Sciences (ISSN 2076-3387).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2017)
Work environments influence the quality of work life, the well-being of employees. Terms, such as “healthy” work environment, are associated with more engaged, more productive employees and better outcomes for other stakeholders. In healthcare contexts for instance, healthy work environments result in better nurse and patient outcomes. A number of factors are associated with healthy work environments, such as leadership, organizational supports, professional development opportunities, inter-professional relationships and communications. Regular work environment assessments measure quality of life indicators associated with employee outcomes such as job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Healthy work environments may be addressed from many systems levels: from global and national public policy to the local level and the nature of the work. The purpose of this Special Issue is to explore diverse conceptual approaches, and to showcase the latest empirical research associated with healthy work environments and their influence on employees and other key, stakeholders.
