Center for Work & Health (CWH)

Mission

Established in 2013, the Center for Work and Health at Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations aims to bring together researchers within SMLR, across Rutgers and beyond who conduct work on any and all topics related to the intersection of work and health. These topics include work organization, human resource management and labor relations in healthcare organizations; the impact of the aforementioned on organizational performance; workforce development for the health care sector, public policy concerning health insurance and access to healthcare (including health insurance as an employment-based benefit); and the impact of work on workers’ physical and mental health. The Center sponsors seminars and conferences and is involved in outreach to practitioners, especially healthcare employers and labor organizations and policy makers.     

Initiatives

  • Health, Well-Being, and Work Conference - Spring 2013
    SMLR's annual Labor and Management Conference was centered on discussions about the health and well-being status of workers and this relationship to work. Conference speakers addressed several issues negatively affecting workers, many of whom are overworked and overstressed.
