Managing the High-Intensity Workplace
Lakshmi Ramarajan, Anna Spangler Nelson and Thomas C. Nelson Associate Professor of Business Administration
People today are under intense pressure to be "ideal workers"--totally committed to their jobs and always on call. How do people cope with these pressures and what are some of the dysfunctional consequences for individuals and for their organizations? While complete dedication to work seems crucial for success, our research illuminates how it is often unnecessary and harmful. Our discussion will consider what individuals and organizations can do to protect employees' ability to fulfill other important aspects of their lives beyond work.
In the webinar you will learn:
- how to show and signal commitment to your employer
- how to maintain a healthy work/life balance to increase productivity and health, and
- how to recognize when your commitment to work is not healthy
