If you work within a high burnout profession, you know it. Conversations about wellness and resiliency are necessary, but not sufficient. What is it about some professions that make them prone to high levels of exhaustion (associated with errors, injuries, illness, absenteeism and turnover)? Work system design promotes either health or illness. We have more than 100 years of research on the design of healthy work systems. Let’s talk about how the research translates to your work system.

Learning Objectives:
Explain the differences between healthy work system design versus wellness initiatives and resiliency strategies
Summarize the foundational research on how work design promotes health or illness
Describe a three-part framework for designing healthy work systems that meets people's needs, reduces the risk of harm, and contributes to organizational sustainability
Identify risk factors of workload, work pressure and work pace into your own work system
