Resumen Report on the psychosocial consequences of the introduction of word processing equipment, based on the results of case studies carried out at three different companies where multistation systems were introduced. A comparison showed that the different work methods chosen by the companies produced different kinds of changes in staff competence. The study showed also that initial stress responses induced by the new equipment were similar in the three cases, but once the techniques began to be mastered the stressors were of different kinds. The crucial factors regarding health and job satisfaction appeared to be the organisation of work with the word processing system and the forms of cooperation between different personnel categories.
