The Job Improvement Service. A Demonstration Project in Occupational Mental Health and an Investment in Productivity.
Leeman, Cavin P.
This project was designed to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of job adjustment counseling and consultation provided at the site of employment by an autonomous professional organization as a means of preventing and ameliorating employees' job adjustment problems, especially among lower income employees. Representatives of management and labor and 373 employees of six Boston employers were given free counseling. The counselors dealt with a wide variety of job-adjustment problems, only some of which were directly work related. The program proved its usefulness in providing a needed service to employees and in helping many of them improve work performance and keep their jobs. One employer was so impressed with the service that he continued the program at company expense. (Author/DS)
