EAWOP Congress - May 29th - June 1st 2019
We are excited to announce that the European Association for Work & Organizational Psychology (EAWOP) 2019 Congress will welcome a keynote presentation by Prof. Sharon Parker on work design.
Please find a short preview of her presentation below.
"The importance of designing work to mitigate against psychosocial risks and to enhance performance has been of considerable interest for a long time. But with digitalization, new organisational forms, an ageing workforce, increases in mental ill health in the population, as well as other changes, the topic of work design is arguably more
important than ever. In this presentation, I will recap on what we know about work design already, and introduce the SMART work design model as a way to summarize key work characteristics. I will then identify several emerging research agendas and provide illustrative studies, including the need to adapt theory to meet contemporary challenges; the neglected long-term effects of work quality; and the antecedents of work design. Finally, I conclude with an introduction to the Centre for Transformative Work Design".
The European Association for Work & Organizational Psychology will hold its 2019 congress at Centro Congressi Lingotto in Turin, Italy. To find out more click here.
