Understanding the Impact of Job Demands and Job Control on Work Outcomes

January 13, 2017 - 11:00am PST, 2:00pm EST



Physical and psychological job demands, in combination with the degree of control a worker has over task completion, play an important role in reducing stress. Occupational stress is an important, modifiable factor affecting work disability. In this webinar, we discuss the current state of the research on workplace interventions that affect job demands and control and how they impact absenteeism, productivity, and financial outcomes.

After watching this webinar, you will learn:

  • what types of interventions have been researched
  • which interventions are supported by the strongest evidence
  • how the interventions impact absenteeism, performance, and financial outcomes
