Public safety officers know that their profession could draw them into the line of fire at any moment, as it did recently for six officers wounded in a shooting standoff in Philadelphia.
Researchers at the UW have used machine learning to develop a new system that can monitor factory and warehouse workers and tell them how ergonomic their jobs are in real time.
People in middle-age need to keep up their physical activity levels if they are to enjoy a fit and healthy retirement -- according to a new report. The study reveals that over-55s in particular should be doing more to keep fit as they approach retirement age -- because of the physical, mental and social benefits of being active. But health problems, not having enough time or energy because of work, and a lack of motivation are leaving many approaching retirement in poor shape.
Supervisors driven by profits could actually be hurting their coveted bottom lines by losing the respect of their employees, who counter by withholding performance, according to a new study led by Baylor University.
Professors from University of Houston-Clear Lake, University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, and University of Houston research how feeling like a fake at work can lead to problems at home. They explored imposter phenomenon and how it's related to family and home satisfaction. They found employees experiencing imposter phenomenon are more likely to have conflict with work and family roles because they're emotionally exhausted, and tend to be less satisfied with family life because of it.
A new report from The Work Foundation, Embedding Work and Related Outcomes into Social Prescribing: Overcoming Challenges and Maximising Opportunities, says social prescribing can be an effective means of integrating people into work. However, government and wider stakeholders must address a range of cultural and practical barriers to realise this potential.
SIOP has published a new white paper that explores critical elements for organizational effectiveness amid turbulence. This white paper provides an overview of the increasingly common terms 'agility' and 'agile' along with practical implications for leaders who are operating in complex, changing environments.
Rutgers computer scientists used artificial intelligence to control a robotic arm that provides a more efficient way to pack boxes, saving businesses time and money.
Latest research finds up to eight hours of paid work a week significantly boosts mental health and life satisfaction. However, researchers found little evidence that any more hours -- including a full five-day week -- provide further increases in wellbeing. They argue the findings show some paid work for the entire adult population is important, but rise of automation may require shorter hours for all so work can be redistributed.
While stories in the media present automation as having the potential to eliminate large swaths of jobs in the near future, a new study by researchers Maury Gittleman and Kristen Monaco argues otherwise.
