Digitalisation is changing the way we work. It's time to venture into something new and create spaces in which management and employees can try out innovative working concepts together. Against this background, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has initiated the "Sustainable Companies and Administrations in Digital Change" funding guideline under the umbrella of the New Quality of Work Initiative (INQA). The funding supports companies and administrations in actively dealing with the challenges and opportunities of a changing world of work. Our DIAMANT project is also one of the sponsored INQA projects and has set up a learning and experiment room with the aim of involving employees in the digitization process and thus designing and implementing an innovative idea and work management system. Further information on all funded projects at www.experimentierräume.de and on DIAMANT at www.arbeitenviernull.de/experimentierraeume/gefoerderte-projekte/inqa-experimentierraeume/diamant.html.
DIAMANT stands for digitalized idea and work management in production, logistics and trade. In the DIAMANT project, we are researching how the emerging digital world of work can be innovatively organized and shaped - to the advantage of companies and employees. Our goal is to improve working conditions in everyday work, to make digitized work healthy and motivating, and to develop potential for employees and companies. To this end, modern and learning-friendly working environments with greater self-organisation and individual freedom are made possible at the workplace and in the work process. We involve our employees directly in this bottom-up digitization process. An innovative digitalized idea management system is being developed so that all employees can participate in the process to generate further starting points for improving the digitalized value-added processes and anchor them in the company on a sustainable basis. The workload and the quality of adaptation in digitized working environments are measured using a specially developed instrument for measuring mental stress and strain. An e-coaching system promotes the competence development of employees and managers for their activities in the changed working day. The project is carried out in a network under the direction of the junior professorship for sociology at the University of Trier.
