Report links flexible work to health benefits
Flexible working arrangements that increase worker control and choice may improve worker health and well-being, according to an evidence review from Durham University and University of Newcastle in the United Kingdom and Canada's University of Montreal.
Researchers examined 10 before-and-after studies on the following flexible working arrangements:
- Gradual retirement
- Involuntary retirement
- Fixed-term contract
Researchers cautioned the review, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, was limited by the small sample.
