Restructuring and ongoing changes are an everyday reality in many companies, for example when parts of the company are relocated or outsourced. Employees also notice such changes in their concrete work situation: Restructuring can make their work more intensive, especially when the same or even more and harder work has to be done with fewer staff. This may have negative effects on employees' health. Managers play an important role in restructuring processes and may mitigate negative health effects by helping and supporting employees.
