The field of competence Labor Market and Working World deals with the question of how the labour market is changing due to globalisation and digitalisation, among other things.
Labor Market and Working World
The researchers look both at individual companies and the economy as a whole and investigate qualitative and quantitative aspects of employment. They analyse and evaluate how the different actors in the labour market – companies, employees, managers and works councils, unions and employers’ associations, and legislators – react to changes in the economic environment. The work of the research unit extends from economic policy issues and empirical research to the practical implementation of detailed HR strategies.
Sections of the Research Unit
Research in this area reveals how work organisation, skill requirements and the quality of jobs have been changing. In this respect the development of job satisfaction and its determinants is of particular interest to learn how employees evaluate working conditions in a changing environment.
