Design Work in Which You Thrive

Good Work Design

Good Work Design creates healthful, engaging, and productive work. It requires astute leadership; learning about the human tasks, equipment, environment, work systems, and governance; identifying what supports and sustains good work; understanding what impedes performance and the warning signs (knowing when things go “wrong” and what you might notice when this happens!); determining the opportunities and consequences of work; and designing for the best possible working conditions.

The human-centred methods are explained by this diagram, a creation of our Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFESA, 2020) and an evolution of images we developed at ViVA. Refer to the HFESA long and short position papers.
