Perceived Organizational Support (POS) and Worksite Wellness

Wednesday, September 24, 2014 2:00 PM Eastern

 

 

 

Hosted by Paul E. Terry, PhD

Editor, The Art of Health Promotion

Chief Science Officer, StayWell Health Management

 

 

 

In the September/October issue of The Art of Health Promotion (TAHP), we examine how the theory of “Perceived Organizational Support” (POS) has been applied to improving employee wellbeing.  The research discussed in the article by Drs. Robert Eisenberger and Linda Shanock affirms that how your organization treats you will affect how you treat your organization.  
Dr. Robert Eisenberger, a professor at the University of Houston, is the discoverer of POS and in our interview he described organizational support theory as follows:  “The key concept of perceived organizational support holds that in order to meet basic psychological needs and judge the value of increased efforts on the organization’s behalf, employees form a general perception concerning the extent to which the organization values their contributions and cares about their wellbeing.”  
Join our discussion on this webinar on how wellness and POS can be used to improve employee health and wellbeing outcomes.
