Resources and Publications

We have a variety of resources and publications at the Center to inform your research or practice.


Publications

We do original research and publish our findings here on our website.  Our publications include journal articles, literature reviews, white papers, reports, and guidesWe have undertaken several literature reviews to broaden our understanding of the range of factors that are likely to affect health, well-being, and productivity because of their link to “drivers” of need satisfaction. 

Examples of these literature reviews are:

  1. DeClercq, C., Pittman, M., Augustin, S., and Banks, C.G. (in progress) The Relationship between Environmental Design Factors and Organizational Outcomes.
  2. Lee, H., Banks, C.G., and Lindeman, D. (in progress) A Review of Health Technology Efficacy in Promoting Health and Well-Being in Workplaces. 
  3. Banks, C.G. (in progress) Criterion Measures to Use in Human Factors/Ergonomics Research for Demonstrating Business Value.

          Additional reviews can be found on the ICHW Publications page.

Blogs

Our blogs will delve into a topic related to health and well-being and present research in a digestible format to reach our many audiences. Our blogs also include thought pieces.

Conferences

With the Healthy Workplaces Model and a framework for examining the health and productivity of workplaces, we implemented a strategy to communicate the Model and framework as broadly as was practical and to multiple audiences.  The purpose was to test the acceptance of this approach and to attract researchers and practitioners who wanted to participate in Center activities to move this approach forward.  Since 2013, we have delivered 16 presentations to professional conferences, 26 presentations to academic audiences, and 6 presentations to employers and service providers.  

We have also initiated a “Science to Practice” Conference Series, with the first conference held May 4, 2017 at UCB.  The conferences are designed around a health and well-being-related problem that requires an integrated, holistic solution.
