According to a new study, employees who feel fairly treated at workplace are more likely to be healthy, have an active lifestyle and go the extra mile for their organisation. It highlights the correlation between employees treatment and their health. For this researchers at University of East Anglia (UEA) in the UK studied whether perceptions of what they call ‘procedural justice’, such as the processes in place to decide on rewards, pay, promotion and assignments, are related to employees’ health.
Findings showed a stark relation that when hen perceptions of fairness changed, the self-rated health of employees also changed. That means employees who were treated well, fairly reported better health than others.
We all know that our work conditions also impact us when it comes to overall mood and demeanour. There exists a correlation between employees’ health and how fairly were they treated at workplace.
The study focused on more than 5,800 people working in Sweden. In the study participants were asked to rate their general state of health on a scale from one to five, one being ‘very good’ and five being ‘very poor’.
As health is the major factor when it comes to overall well-being hence these findings can help raise awareness among employers and authorities that fairness at work. These findings were published in Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment and Health.
