Opportunities and risks of mobile and digital communication in the workplace. TAB-Fokus

Börner, Franziska; Kehl, Christoph; Nierling, Linda


Digitisation involves a comprehensive workplace transformation which is embedded in an overall economic and societal change (globalisation, demographic trends). The currently widely unclear impacts on the labour market resulting from the digitisation of production and business processes as well as from new platform-based forms of work are of particular social importance. The increased flexibility resulting from being able to work anywhere at any time offers employees more autonomy with regard to shaping their work. Partly, however, there is a risk that the boundaries between work and leisure time are blurred and work is intensified which could involve impacts on human health. Currently, the knowledge and data basis for evaluating these ambiguities is very rudimentary and should be improved within the framework of a broadly based research policy.
