Welcome to the website of the Work and Organisational Psychology group


The field of work and organisational psychology is part of the discipline of psychology and addresses psychological aspects of work and organisations. Led by Christian Korunka, the group investigates, among others, the following issues:

  • What are new demands in our modern world of work?
  • What are the opportunities and challenges arising from flexible forms of work?
  • How do new forms of work (new office concepts, crowd work, etc.) affect employees?
  • How should new forms of work be organised?
  • What are the characteristics of a healthy workplace?
  • How can work become safer?

For further information on our key research areas and current projects, please refer to the Research section on our website.

Invitation to participate in a study "Home office in times of crisis"

 

We would like to invite you to participate in a study on the topic "Home Office in the time of crisis". Anyone who normally works at least 25 hours a week and is currently working in a home office can participate.

WHY? We believe that we can learn a lot for our future from the current difficult situation. Many of us currently have to work at home. Often for the first time, often under completely new conditions, but others have to work in the usual way. We would like to use the findings of our study to help improve working conditions after the crisis.

WHAT IS THE STUDY ABOUT? We ask questions about your current home office situation, your social support options, how you deal with the crisis and your well-being.

WHAT IS YOUR BENEFIT? You will take part in a study that will look at your current working conditions at home; this will also allow you to reflect on your own work situation. You contribute to a common learning process. On completion of the study, you will be sent an anonymous evaluation.

WHAT IS YOUR EFFORT? At the beginning of your participation, you will fill in a questionnaire which will take about 15 minutes. On the following five working days (i.e. not on weekends) you will receive a request by email (or SMS) at approx. 5.30 p.m. with the request to fill in some questions about today's working day (duration approx. 5-7 minutes). In a few months (when the current crisis will be over) we would invite you again to participate in a follow-up study. The procedure will then be similar.

PRIVACY: We guarantee with the name of the University of Vienna that we comply with the strictest data protection criteria (in accordance with the guidelines of the DSGVO). All questionnaires including data are administered on a platform of the University of Vienna and evaluated anonymously and confidentially. Your e-mail address or mobile phone number (required for the daily sending of the questionnaires) will be deleted immediately after completion of the study.
