Title Evaluating organizational-level work stress interventions: Beyond traditional methods
Bibliographic information Oct.-Dec. 2007, Vol.21, No.4, p.348-362. 60 ref.
Abstract This literature survey considers some of the philosophical and methodological issues in relation to enterprise-level interventions for work-related stress. Starting from the complex and continually changing realities of work organization, the authors argue in favour of a more broadly conceived framework for evaluation that acknowledges the limitations of traditional approaches. The study concludes by offering an outline framework for this broader approach to the evaluation of interventions.
