Dr. Carl Cederström on Wellness Programs

Carl Cederström is Assistant Professor in organisation theory at Stockholm Business School of Stockholm University. In 2015 he published The Wellness Syndrome (with André Spicer) and in 2012 published Dead Man Working (with Peter Fleming).

In this interview Cederström discusses some of the issues that come up when a focus on wellness in the workplace gets out of hand.

Make. Work. Better.
