Flexibility and availability

Advancements in technology and societal changes have always effected the way we work. From an occupational health psychology perspective we are interested in several research questions: What changes in the way we work can we observe? What consequences for workers’ health and well-being can we expect? How can we explain these effects on health and well-being? How can we prevent negative health consequences and foster positive aspects of news ways of working?
Currently we are working on several empirical studies addressing these questions. We are investigating the health consequences of extended availability for work, the health consequences of workplace tele pressure, or the effects on health and well-being of non-regular (atypical) work arrangements. Additionally, we are interested in the effects of social media use at work for well-being and performance of workers.
