Welcome to The Sustainable WorkForce website
We hope you are inspired by your visit to this webpage and will join this initiative by either sharing your research and work practices, or by helping us to design, monitor and evaluate the effective implementation of sustainable workforce practices.
We define a sustainable work force as one where individuals are productively employed in jobs that sustain psychological and economic well-being over time as well as balance the diverse interests of employers, workers, and families. In a sustainable workforce, employees are given opportunities to continuously develop and renew their knowledge, and enhance employability, well-being and energy to thrive on and off the job over their careers.
One of the key reasons we built this website was to bring together a variety of research and practices that help demonstrate the importance of work and workplace design to building a sustainable workforce. We would like to encourage people to share their work and have this site be a place where people from a variety of disciplines can go to develop this concept, learn about our work, and engage with others as well.
