Dissertation project

Working with digital tools and their effects: Differences regarding work-related ICT use and health effects

The increasing spread of information and communication technologies (ICTs) is leading to major changes in working and private life. Using ICTs for professional purposes has both positive and negative consequences. The aim of this research project is to investigate which factors have an influence on the direction of the impact of ICTs on well-being and health indicators in employees. Therefore, we investigate whether specific ICT usage events after work as well as their evaluation may be responsible for the different impact directions. By understanding the underlying processes, we aim to better understand which working conditions (e.g., availability after hours) can promote health and well-being under which circumstances.
