The Importance of Addressing Organizational Stress Among Corrections Officers

NIJ-funded research conducted by Northeastern University found that organizational stress among corrections officers, particularly in relationships between supervisors and front-line officers, along with long shifts or mandatory overtime, substantially contributed to a high-stress work environment that can interfere with a positive work-life balance.

For #CorrectionsWeek, read about ongoing research to expand our understanding of how to address organization stress, and help improve the health and wellness of corrections staff: https://nij.ojp.gov/topics/articles/importance-addressing-organizational-stress-among-corrections-officers?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social-media&utm_campaign=correctionsweek2021
