(Washington D.C., Wednesday, May 24, 2017) – On Wednesday, May 24, 2017, the American Psychological Association will be releasing the “2017 Work and Well-Being Survey.” The survey reveals that American adults who experienced recent or current changes in the workplace are more likely than those not experiencing organizational change to report chronic work stress, and are less likely to feel valued and trust their employer. The survey also includes a section on how political talk is plaguing workers, months after the presidential election.
Director of APA’s Center for Organizational Excellence, Dr. David W. Ballard discusses:
- How workplace changes can affect the well-being of employees and their experience on the job;
- Ability for workers to trust management motives; and
- Workers being more cynical and negative during the workday because of political talk at work.
