Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health follows on from two previous issues on Workplace Health and Wellbeing in 2019 and 2020. Here, we focus on health and wellbeing in the workforce within the context of the continuing global COVID-19 pandemic, and the post-pandemic era.
This issue will consider the relationship between the COVID-19 pandemic and the physical and mental wellbeing of employees and trainees; experiences of particular occupational groups and sectors (including students in higher education as the future workforce); psychosocial risk factors; organisational interventions for workforce support; the engagement of line managers in workplace health initiatives, promoting healthy lifestyles at work; digital approaches to supporting employee health and wellbeing or facilitate pandemic-related shifts to remote working; and the prevention or management of chronic conditions at work and issues of equality, diversity, and inclusion in the context of COVID-19.
In particular, we welcome articles on the implementation and effectiveness of interventions to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic. This may include the experiences and outcomes of workplace SARS-CoV-2 testing and vaccination programmes, and supportive interventions to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the mental and physical health of the current and future workforce.
