Scope and Topics: - The webinar will cover recent research published on the topic of work, health and wellbeing by Tarani Chandola, with a particular focus on the wider social determinants of health. Two research studies will be highlighted, one on the association between poor quality work and chronic stress related biomarkers, which asks the question “Is any job better than no job?”. The second research study examines the association of flexible work arrangements with chronic stress related biomarkers, and asks the question whether flexibility can improve wellbeing at work. The webinar will end with some suggestions on the future of work, wellbeing and health, what we can do to improve wellbeing at work.

He joined the University of Manchester and the Cathie Marsh Institute in April 2010, was the head of the Disciplinary Area of Social Statistics (2012-2014) and the director of the Cathie Marsh Institute (2013-2016).
