Abstract
Data from a national survey of organizations were used to examine whether there are differences in the quality of worklife among organizations that offer stress management programs (SMPs) and those that do not. After controlling for size and industry, the authors found organizations with SMPs to be more likely to offer programs that encourage employee well-being, safety, and skill development than those without SMPs. However, there was no difference in the number of accidents, harassment complaints, or discrimination complaints. Organizations that offered SMPs also tended to offer other programs (i.e., substance abuse and mental health services) to facilitate worker health and well-being and, in this respect, the presence of an SMP appeared to be an indicator of a better place to work.
