Abstract

Work related stress represents one of the most important emerging risks in occupational health and management. The implementation of targeted strategies to manage stress antecedents and outcomes represents a global challenge with relevant implications for workers well-being and business success. Despite the direct and indirect costs of work-related stress are well established, companies often fail to find adequate strategies to manage stress and the use of large sums of money not always reach the goal of improving a conflictual environment. One of the most important determinants of work-related stress onset is the lack of a supportive work climate, in terms of poor support provided by colleagues, supervisors or organizations. Improving organizational support can represent a target for both managers and workers who want to mitigate the negative consequences of stress, both in economic and health terms. The aim of this study was to investigate, through a narrative literature review, how a poor organizational support can affect a work organization, and which strategies are now available to improve a supportive climate. Focusing on the last five years of publication, pertinent scientific articles are critically checked and discussed. The results of this narrative review could represent a useful tool for supervisors and leaders, providing evidence on successful strategies to improve workers’ well-being and consequently business success.
