Employees have a set of needs as part of the 'psychological contract' of employment. However, organizations operate for a reason and they too have agendas and needs. It is how the two come together that determines the capacity for good human relations and optimum productivity. Employee Well-being Support is an edited collection of expert contributions that explores all key issues in this increasingly critical area.

‘…I consider this to be an important book. A book which will be seen in the years ahead as containing many of the ideas which defined the Fourth Wave of transformation. The wave which will finally put people where they belong – at the heart of the organisation.’ From the Foreword by David Fairhurst, Senior Vice President, Chief People Officer – Northern Europe McDonald’s Restaurants Organisations today have to place much greater weight on the emotional and psychological health of employees. Those that neglect this are risking reduced productivity, poorer labour relations, adverse publicity and even litigation. Written by an international team of leading practitioners, academics and business leaders, Employee Well-being Support covers current developments in employee support and provides guidance to inform everyday practice in the workplace. It is made up of three parts: Organisational Behaviour Issues and Well-being (includes organisational ‘duty of care’, managing diversity and behaviour risk management) Responding to Specific Organisational Challenges (includes suicide and sudden death at work, workplace bullying and responses to disasters) Mental Health, Emotions and Work (includes stress management, mentoring, coaching and managing conflict) This practical and comprehensive guide covers all aspects of employee well-being support in one volume. It is a must-have resource for a wide range of practitioners and students across occupational psychology, HR, coaching and counselling. Business leaders and students on MBA and other business programmes will also benefit from reading this book.
