These PowerPoints are from the 2018 Research and Evaluation Conference on Self-Sufficiency (RECS). This session looked at the relationship between job characteristics and well-being. The presentations described variations in the employment characteristic of low-income families across racial and ethnic groups, findings from a literature review on the relationship between the psychosocial conditions of work and health or well-being, and potential impacts of employment on health and well-being in a context in which individuals were randomly assigned to work or non-work. Michelle Blocklin (Abt Associates) moderated this session. Various methodologies were used across the presentations. (Author introduction)
