Challenges and Prospects of the Interconnected Working Environment

Ubiquitous Working

The technological potential for separating work from the workplace is constantly increasing. Mobile devices, mobile internet access and remote access to firms’ internal networks and data allow for working anywhere at any time, i.e. Ubiquitous Working (UW). An interdisciplinary network of scholars used theory-based empirical research to explore the opportunities and challenges arising from UW. For this purpose, the project made use of rich data on both employees and employers in order to examine the diverse dimensions of UW that are relevant from the perspective of the involved disciplines – economics, work psychology, media psychology, occupational medicine, and sociology. The project’s objective was to bring together these disciplines in a closely collaborating network of institutions and scholars in order to gain deeper insights into the phenomenon of UW.
