Workforce/Workplace Mismatch? Work, Family, Health, and Well-Being
June 16–18, 2003, Washington, D.C.
This conference was the first in a series of conferences and other activities that identified the best workplace policies and practices to improve health and well-being. The conference reviewed the “state of the science” pertaining to how different dimensions of work and family act independently and interact to affect the health and well-being of workers, families, children, communities, and workplaces from numerous disciplinary perspectives. Researchers in the areas of anthropology, business management, child development, demography, economics, occupational health, psychology, and sociology identified theories, methodologies, key concepts, and constructs addressing work, family, health, and well-being issues. The conference served to educate researchers across disciplines, NIH and other government staff, policymakers, work-life professionals, and employers about work and family research findings that are relevant to identifying the best workplace policies and programs to improve health and well-being.
