Summary
Changing the workplace to help prevent stress is much more cost effective in the long term than treating employees for the effects of stress. But to date, there has been little guidance for employers who wish to implement such programmes. This text has gathered together examples of best practice in the workplace across a range of EU countries and organizations. It explores the costs and benefits of stress prevention for workers and organizations and includes case studies, evaluations and reviews. It should be of value to occupational psychologists, consultants and managers across a wide range of work settings
