Abstract

The organizational comfort has been defined as the relationship between people and work environment. The supervisor's functions imply organizing and relation competences, listening and observation, communication and negotiation. Unfortunately, the reality is quite different: there are often situations of communication disorder between the supervisor and the worker, where the first, unaware of his role and responsability, doesn't understand the worker's needs, doesn't comunicate rightly the risk, doesn't develope any emphatic attitude and organize work without thinking to individual inclinations and limitations. The worker perceives this situation as increasing sensation of tiredness and working stress. The workers, often involved in this organization, have to ask overtime medical examinations to obtain some limitations. Observing this big increase of limitations in some firms with working people relatively young, we have decided to elaborate an experimental project involving both the occupational doctor and the psychologist. We analized the relations between the supervisor and the worker, with the aim to increase organizational comfort, through the diffusion of anonymous questionnaires or training courses about behaviour analyses and communication strategies, verifying any possible modifications of the organization after our intervention. © PI-ME, Pavia 2010.
