Work Life Balance: Adverse Work Environment Tied to Depression

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, January 14th, 2014

A new study published in the September issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine analyzed 15 years’ worth of data from nearly 1,900 adult workers and found that those with adverse working conditions had higher scores for depression.

Improvements in the work environment could diminish the risk of depression in working-age adults.

Common sense tells us that depressed people cannot provide the same positive quality of patient care. Employers need to assess the attitudes and satisfaction of their staff, to determine their needs and how to fill them…for the sake of the staff member…and the patient.
