Summary

The current article focuses on the relationship between time strain (work-time demands and control) and health outcomes. The authors drew participants from an organization in the midst of implementing a Results Only Work Environment. The intervention was not associated with changes in psychological time demands but was related to greater perceived time control. Increases in psychological time demands and time adequacy was related to increased positive and decreased negative health outcomes.
