  • Impact of using social media at work

    With increasing use of innovative information and communication technology (ICT) in the workplace and associated changes in business processes, use of social media (the newest ICT trend) can be one way of providing workers with immediate communication and information, and supporting innovative work behaviour. However, there are concerns that use of social media may increase emotional exhaustion due to information overload. Conversely, the introduction and use of company-wide (ICT) such as workflow or enterprise resource planning (ERP) software since the 1990s has standardised company practices, leaving little room for innovative behaviour and encouraging passive behaviour.

  • Belgium: Monitoring improvements in quality of work in Flanders

    In 2001 the Flemish Government and social partners agreed to increase substantially the quality of jobs in the region. The Flemish workability monitor was developed to help determine progress in implementing this policy. This survey data report reviews the methods and key findings of the workability monitor between 2004 and 2010. The ‘workability’or quality of work rate increased from 52.3% in 2004 to 54.3% in 2010. This means that over half of Flemish employees do not suffer from stress at work, have a job that motivates them and provides sufficient learning opportunities, and achieve work–life balance.
