Main Abstract Content: The symposium will present results from a longitudinal project aiming to investigate the relations between external demands, organizational change, organizational structures, commitment, job-crafting and work-place outcomes such as employee health and quality of care among eldercare leaders and employees in two European countries, Sweden and Spain. The first wave of data showed some unexpected results. The association between job crafting, managers’ commitment and employees’ health, turnover intent and perception quality of care showed different patterns in the two countries. The impact of contextual aspects such as organizational structure and organizational change are investigated and discussed.
