Employment Relationships and Worker Well-being

Today’s (November 15) Symposium, co-sponored by the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences (formerly CROET) and the Portland State University Occupational Health Psychology program, dealt with the changing employment relationship (job loss, downsizing, working under contract) and worker well-being.

Speakers addressed the improving employment climate in urbanized areas contrasted with the persistent unemployment in the more rural areas of Oregon, the impact of job insecurity on health and steps to reduce those health effects, relationships with employees and steps to build positive relationships with employees, and best practices to use with temporary and contract workers.

The symposium, held at Portland State University’s University Inn, will be available for review on the CROET’s Outreach and Education site later in the month:
