The Macro-Determinants of the Quality of Working Life
In their book ‘The future of work and health’ Bezold et al. (1986) conclude that there are four ‘key trends’ (also called macro or environmental factors) that determine the future of working life: economic developments, technological developments, developments in the norms and values of people, countries and/or societies and, finally, changes in the work and the work situation itself. Bezold et al. (1986) then distinguish three key trends that determine the future of health and health care: demographic developments, changes in the financing and organization of care, and changes in attitudes towards health and health care.
