The main objective of CHRYSALIDE is to implement an easy-to-replicate intervention program of 1 year, in order to promote empowering behaviors in directors and front line supervisors in SC, and to test its impact at two years on workers scores of structural empowerment, in comparison with another SC from the same University Hospital Center (CHU).
The secondary objective is to assess the effect of the intervention on psychological empowerment.
To answer to the main objective, quantitative data will be collected three times during the project: Before the implementation, directly after the intervention, and 1 year after the end of the intervention, or 2 years after the beginning. To improve our understanding of what happened during the intervention, a systematic ethnographic report will be done by the investigators and the facilitators engaged in the intervention.
Quantitative data collection will occur during the occupational health visit that is required to be done every two years considering French legislation. For the need of the study, visits will be done every years, and scheduled to match with the beginning and the end of the intervention.
Quantitative data consist in (1) self-reported questionnaires, (2) standardized assessment by medical practitioner during the visit, (3) institutional indicators routinely collected by the SC.

- Other: collective and psycho-social intervention
The intervention duration is 1 year. It combine (1) In each unit, working groups aimed at improving QWL, (2) counseling and training of directors and frontline managers, and (3) in each unit, concertation meeting between workers, front-line managers and directors.
- Structural empowerment, assessed with the Conditions for Work Effectiveness Questionnaire II (CWEQII). [ Time Frame: 12 months and 24 months after initial measure. ]This self-reported questionnaire is composed of 19 items about how the worker perceives his work environment. They allow calculation of 6 sub-scores and 1 global score of structural empowerment, reflecting access to the aspects of work environment known to mediate the control of workers over their job. The subscores are "formal power", "informal power", "opportunity", "information", "support" and "resources". They are calculated by summing their specific items, and dividing by 3, except for "informal power" for which the sum is divided by 4. Every sub-score is between 1 and 5. The global score of structural empowerment is calculated by summing the 6 sub-scores. The global score is between 5 and 30. There is not any threshold for the sub-scores and the global score: the higher the scores, the more empowering the working conditions are. The global score is the primary outcome in this study. Safety issue : No.
- Psychological empowerment, assessed with the Psychological Empowerment Scale (PES). [ Time Frame: 12 months and 24 months after initial measure. ]
This self-reported questionnaire is composed of 12 items. They allow calculation of 4 sub-scores and 1 global score of psychological empowerment, reflecting cognitions-believes people with power have about themselves. The sub-scores are "autonomy", "impact", "competence" and "meaning". The sub-scores are calculated by summing their specific items. They are between 15 and 25. The global score is calculated by summing the sub-scores and dividing by 4. It is between 15 and 25. There is not any threshold for the global and sub-scores: the higher the scores, the more people are psychologically empowered. The global score of psychological empowerment is considered as a secondary outcome in this study.
Safety Issue: No
