Robotic Surgery - Organisational Dynamics in the Digital Society

What does this research entail?

This project researches the ongoing changes in organisational dynamics and its consequences  among employees in the public sector. The project performs hands-on research on the consequences of how disruptions like COVID-19 change the way in which jobs have changed, and how this impacts the motivation and wellbeing of workers. It also analyses the changing nature of hard and soft skills needed for jobs in the public sector in this digital age.

For example, we investigated the working conditions during the covid crisis among employees within the municipality of Rotterdam in relation to their well-being.
