In our research we specialized in Occupational Health Psychology (OHP), which combines the areas of work psychology, health psychology and occupational health. OHP is concerned with psychosocial characteristics of the workplace such as job demands, job control, and the social work environment and their effect on employee health and well-being. Health and well-being variables range from physical health, for example, cardiovascular disease, to mental health such as psychological distress, burnout or depression. Occupational health psychologists also look into how psychosocial work characteristics affect motivational components of employees such as job satisfaction, commitment and work engagement.
Within the framework of OHP we currently pursue the following research topics:

work place interventions immigrant and low-qualified employees flexibility and availability explaining mechanisms
