Abstract

Il presente report analizza i risultati del progetto di ricerca annuale sul Job Crafting condotto dal Bicocca Training & Development Centre (BTDC) dell’Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca in collaborazione con le aziende associate. Obiettivo del progetto è quello di fornire una descrizione approfondita del Job Crafting, delle condizioni che lo favoriscono e delle conseguenze che genera secondo una triplice prospettiva: individuale, organizzativa, di politiche e pratiche HR. Inoltre, offre degli spunti pratici e operativi sul modo in cui il Job Crafting può essere incentivato utilizzando la formazione e lo sviluppo.

Abstract

Over the last three decades a large body of research has showed that psychosocial job dimensions such as time pressure, decision authority and social support, could have significant implications for psychological distress and well-being. Theoretical models, such as the job demand-control-social support model (JDCS model), the effort-reward imbalance model (ERI model), the job demands-resources model (JDR model) and the vitamin model suggest that distress and positive dimensions at work (well being and motivation) can be considered as two sides of the same coin. If the job is designed to provide the right mix of psychosocial job dimensions (e.g., optimal time pressure, decision authority and social support), work can boost job engagement and well-being as well as productive behaviors at work. When the job is not designed in an optimal way (e.g., too much time pressure and too little decision authority) work can trigger stress reactions and burnout. Although some insight has been gained on how job dimensions could predict distress and well-being, and also into the dimensions that might moderate and mediate these associations; research still faces several challenges. Firstly, most of this research has been cross-sectional in nature, thus making it difficult to conclude on the long-term effects of psychosocial job dimensions. Another challenge concerns how the contextual dimensions can be incorporated into micro-levels models on employee stress and well-being. Nowadays, work is carried out in the context of a wider environment that includes organizational variables. So far the role of the organizational variables in the theoretical frameworks for explaining the relationships between psychosocial job dimensions, employee distress and well-being, has often been underplayed. The main aim of this research topic is to bring together international research from different theoretical and methodological perspectives in order to advance knowledge and practice in the field of work stress.

Abstract

In this book, we introduce our research on success at work in a very broad sense. This research can be said to have begun during the fi rst years of this millennium.&#xD;Adjunct Professor Uusiautti fi rst focused on work drive in nurses and&#xD;midwives, expanding her analysis to Finnish Employees of the Year, while&#xD;Professor Määttä conducted her studies on love and human relationships. When&#xD;our specifi c research streams converged, we began studying positive development&#xD;in childhood and adolescence as well as in adulthood and later life. We even&#xD;managed to incorporate our ideas on leadership. Now, we think it is time to&#xD;compile our fi ndings into a psychology of success. In many parts of this book, we&#xD;will refer to the route to success – we hope that this book will function as a signpost&#xD;showing the way to happiness-promoting success at work.&#xD;The standpoint in this book rests on psychology, particularly positive psychology.&#xD;This means that we deliberately aimed to combine the themes of work success&#xD;with fl ourishing and favourable development. Our purpose is to inspire and&#xD;challenge researchers and all those interested to examine the possibilities of this&#xD;positive approach and to consider this as one example of how to seize phenomena&#xD;that are diffi cult to defi ne comprehensively but, fi rst and foremost, we want them&#xD;to see the connection between success and happiness.

Abstract

Despite huge research efforts only simple scheduling algorithms assist humans in their daily work. This work presents a comprehensive concept for a permanent running algorithmic scheduler intelligently collaborating with the humans. The developed approaches provide prompt reactions on manufacturing events and intelligent rescheduling based on analysis of the optimization potential and demand. The practicability of the presented approaches is proved by dynamic simulations with real data.

Abstract

As most industrialised countries, Switzerland is increasingly attempting to (re)integrate people with health restrictions and disabilities into the job market. The reinforced political demand to reintegrate people with health restrictions challenges both the involved organisations and its employees. While the means and methods to assess (in)capacity for work are more and more refined, the according practices become more and more diverse. On the basis of an ethnography of two Swiss cantonal work integration agencies, this study analyses how the institutions under scrutiny construct and deal with their clients’ (in)capacity for work. It reconstructs how “cases“ of health restrictions are organisationally problematized, negotiated, and dealt with and examines the underlying logic of these practices and strategies.&#xD;

Abstract

Losing a job has always been understood as one of the most important causes of downward social mobility in modern societies. And it's only gotten worse in recent years, as the weakening position of workers has made re-entering the labour market even tougher. The Impact of Losing Your Job builds on findings from life course sociology to show clearly just what effects job loss has on income, family life, and future prospects. Key to Ehlert's analysis is a comparative look at the United States and Germany that enables him to show how different approaches to welfare state policies can ameliorate the effects of job loss-but can at the same time make labour insecurity more common.

Abstract

The book shows that apprenticeship company networks in Switzerland have an increased integration potential for foreign students and weaker learners at school because they improve their chances of finding job training and prevent apprenticeship contract cancellations. The reasons for this lie in the different way in which selection and training are organised compared with individual in-company training: features specific to the network, such as rotation and shared supervision, increase learners' capabilities and act as institutional conversion factors.
