Digitalisation has engendered a profound societal transformation and presents one of the major challenges for the future of work. To better understand how socio-technical changes are socially and technically mediated, the project investigates the implications of digitalisation for qualification requirements, workplace design and employment in the sectors of logistics and health care. The objectives are to identify a) framework conditions for digitalisation at work; b) the role of the individual in the transformation process under aspects of interaction with technology; c) the restructuring effects of digital technology on work processes and skills profiles and related qualification requirements; and d) how organisations rationalise the implementation of digital technologies at the workplace and what this means for the deployment of human resources.
