‘The timing of this Handbook could not be better. Now the World’s economies appear to be starting to recover from Global Financial Crash, there will be a stronger need than ever for organizations to manage the health of their employees. Financial stringency, longer hours, demands for performance all contribute to stress and, unless managed appropriately, can result in negative health outcomes. What I really like about this book, therefore, is its increased emphasis on positive outcomes. It’s not all doom and gloom. Based on the latest evidence-based research, the authors of the chapters in the Handbook provide a positive agenda for improving workplace health and well-being.’

‘Health is a key driver of economic growth and an invaluable resource. This new edition of the Handbook of Work and Health Psychology is very timely in reflecting the important economic and social changes which have impacted on the nature of work, work organization and employee health and well-being in recent years.’
‘In particular, the book highlights the key importance of an organizational strategy for health improvement build around intervention and prevention. The book is an excellent up-to-date resource for those interested or working in the area of occupational psychology and health.’
