TAVARES, Ariane Serpeloni. Intense work: option or condition?. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.1, pp. 123-132. ISSN 1983-8220.

This theoretical article has as its theme the intense work, which consists of a high expenditure of the physical, cognitive and emotional worker’s energies, either through a high intensive effort or a high extensive effort. The focus is on management-level workers, who through intense work can get some rewards, but also face negative consequences such as health problems and work-family conflict. The article discusses the consequences of intense work that could make us believe that it’s a worker option. However, when pointing out the elements of social, historical, cultural and economic contexts involved, it is evident that intense work is an effect of the way work is organized in contemporary world.

Keywords : Intense work; Work Organization; Behavior analysis; Organizational Psychology.
