Summary - Psychosocial risk exposure and mental health outcomes of European workers with low socioeconomic statusKeywords:
The labour market’s changing landscape is seeing a rise in mental health stressors. This review looks at psychosocial risks (PSRs) and adverse mental health outcomes in European workers with low socioeconomic status (LSES). It highlights the COVID-19 pandemic and digitalisation as strong external trends impacting the presence of PSRs and mental health at work for this specific group of workers.
The review offers 10 good practices from companies and stakeholders that moderate the extent of adverse health outcomes in LSES workers. The findings inform future research directions and propose policy pointers to improve management and prevention of PSRs for the group of LSES workers.
