About the Program
We are conducting randomized controlled trials to evaluate the impact of two interventions in turkey and chicken processing plants in England. The interventions are designed to improve a sense of belonging (Treatment 1) and rehumanize subordinates and co-workers (Treatment 2). The sense of belonging intervention is intended to reduce alienation in the workplace. The humanization intervention is intended to improve the rational processing of information and reduce abusive treatment such as sexual solicitation of subordinates and co-workers. Social psychology research shows that a sense of belonging and humanizing treatment are essential for well-being, and that both can be improved with short interventions.
