During the first webinar in the new NIOSH Future of Work Webinar Series, this event focused on the role of organizational design, including the basic, foundational physical and functional infrastructures influencing where, when, and how work is conducted. The organization of work refers to psychosocial and physical aspects of the workplace that greatly impact worker safety and health issues, such as: autonomy, burnout and stress prevention, healthy leadership, job flexibility, leave policies, scheduling, social and corporate responsibility, built environment, workspace, and work-life fit.

The featured speakers discussed various organizational design sub-topics and safety, health, and well-being opportunities and challenges facing tomorrow’s workforce.
