We empirically investigate how the ways of working in Japanese firms affect workers' mental and physical health. We also focus on firm health and productivity management by examining how workers and companies sustainably and healthily create the human capital necessary to increase labor productivity. Taking advantage of the findings in labor economics, occupational health psychology and epidemiology, we use a variety of micro-data of firms and employees to derive academic and policy implications.
