We here present a management model developed by Spiess and Stadler. It is employers’ responsibility to protect the health of their employees, and employees’ well-being is a core resource for organizational success. Indeed, an organization cannot achieve long-term success without healthy employees. High-quality results can be achieved most effectively by healthy, motivated employees. Spiess’ and Stadler’s management model has four levels. The first, the heart of the model, is described as goal- and task-oriented management, in which leadership is defined as goal-oriented exertion of influence. The second level comprises staff-oriented management and support. The third level relates to the design of work and organizational processes, another important indicator of a good leadership culture. The fourth level refers to the creation of a health-promoting management and organizational culture. The consequences of using this model will be discussed.
