As governments throughout the world experience increasing fiscal challenges, the pressures on public sectors to streamline services and harness technological advances is unprecedented.  Many have undergone huge budgetary cuts as a result, but what are the effects of this intense organizational change on such a large and varied workforce?  And how can managers within the public sector meet the challenge of delivering services whilst maintaining the health and well-being of staff tasked with carrying out the work?

Managing Health and Well-Being in the Public Sector: A Guide to Best Practice is the ideal companion to any manager in these challenging times.  Exploring the realities of working in the public sector, and those factors which can add meaning and purpose to working life, the book provides managers with a practical toolkit for creating the best working environment, as well as nurturing resilience and motivation within their staff. 

Written by two authors with a lifetime of experience in the field, the book also examines why promoting occupational health and well-being is beneficial to organizations, drawing on a wealth of international research to support this argument.  It concludes with a series of case studies in which an international range of public sector managers discuss initiatives they have implemented, and how successful they have been. 

This is the ideal companion for any manager working in the public sector.  It will also be instructive reading for any student or researcher of occupational or organizational psychology, as well as HRM.
