Focal research topics

How the modern world of work affects the health and quality of life of employees is a central theme in the working group's research activities. Processes of societal change, such as the digital transformation or the flexibilization of work, affect how we work - and how we work affects our  behavior  and mental processes in everyday (working) life. The focal research topics of the working group are:

  • Job insecurity
  • Atypical employment
  • Financial strain
  • Leadership and health
  • Work design
  • Flexibilization of work
  • Temporal dynamics between stressors, resources and health
