Why should I participate?
Sustainable Workforce is an innovative scientific research project. For the first time, organizations, managers and employees from nine european countries are questionned within a single study. The project produces unique knowledge and best practices on how to achieve and maintain a sustainable workforce.
Not only the academic community will benefit from our results, also work organizations, employers, union representatives, governments, and policymakers at EU level belong to our target group.
Questions that can be answered after the research are for example: Which types of organizations invest in the training programs for older employees? Are employees that are free in choosing their own starting and finishing times more productive? To what extent do organizational investments in working from home help their employees combining work and family? And do social outings with colleages result in more cohesive workplaces?
Each employee counts
To get a complete and reliable picture of the causes and consequences of organizational investments in a sustainable workforce, it is important that as many employees as possible participate. Employees are very diverse: they differ in age, gender, working hours, family situation, job satisfaction and so on. It is therefore important that all these characteristics are captured in our research. If some employees do not participate it harms the representativeness of the study and the results might become less reliable.
