Healthy Organization is the response to the needs of employees. The genesis of the idea.
It is commonly known that stress, poor diet, or irregular sleep can be the cause of many dangerous illnesses and ailments. Until recently, particularly in organizational environments, little was said about the impact of these factors on people’s mental state, unless it was directly related to their efficiency and productivity. Furthermore, even today, cultural and social conditions favor work being primarily associated with responsibilities, overtime, and lack of time for family.
Unfortunately, it happens that even well-educated people who, in theory, should be aware of the negative impact of overworking on life and health still believe that the most valuable are those who work a lot and this is the main element of achieving success. It comes to the point that for many young people, the best way to show oneself to the employer and guarantee success in the future is to work 16 hours a day. And indeed, the approach, observed in Wall Street movies from the 80s and 90s, may have worked – especially since it was repeated by successive generations of managers and superiors who subscribed to these rules.
