TAVARES, Ariane Serpeloni  and  SCOPINHO, Rosemeire Aparecida. The paradoxical consequences of intensified work: a study with logistic managers. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-24. ISSN 1983-8220.

The article addresses the results of a qualitative research on the consequences of intensified work for ten managers in the transport logistics sector. The work becomes intensified by the use of several mechanisms, especially those that lead to an increase in the rate of execution of activities or work hours. The main consequences of the intensified work identified proved to paradoxical, since, on the one hand, the managers pointed out negative effects (health impacts, difficulties in reconciling private life with work demands and diluting of barriers between working time and non-work), on the other hand, indicated some advantages, such as the preference for the high rate and the financial and career benefits resulting from the acceptance of intensified working conditions. The influence of managerial ideology was considered in the understanding and weighting about these benefits of intensified work.

Keywords : Intensified work Immaterial work; Managers; Health; Managerialist ideology.
