Well-being and Leadership in Future Work

Well-being and Leadership in Future Work

The Well-being and Leadership in Future Work research group studies changes in work and in working life. It develops innovative solutions and methods in order to enhance administrative, professional and leadership skills involved in modern work.

The research group has studied mobile, multi-locational, virtual and distributed work together with the impacts on well-being, the leadership practices and the workplace solutions these modern types of work have. Based on this, and in addition to providing innovative leadership practices, tools and ways of action, the group has developed models that promote well-being at work and new workplace solutions (physical and virtual) to be used by partner organizations.
