Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly transformed both the nature and experience of work in lasting ways. This talk focuses on the experience of work from the perspective of employees living and working during the pandemic. Research studies on the meaning of work relationships, motivational features of work, and perceptions of occupational risk will be discussed. Woven through this discussion will be an emphasis on the importance of workers’ perceptions of safety climate within their organizations, careful consideration of occupational differences, and the need for more research on the economic well-being of workers in times of crisis.
