14-16 August 2019 in Helsinki, Finland
The 4th International Interdisciplinary Conference on Research on Work and Working Life
The WORK2019 conference themed ‘Real Work in the Virtual World’ explored the complexities of the current work with six plenary sessions and 23 streams.
In recent years work and working life have increasingly become characterized by features such as projectification, short-termism and emphasis on technologies. The rise of the global platform economy, and with it, the growth of gigs and tasks as work as well as the assumed entrepreneurialism among highly skilled professionals and professions all give reason to explore, challenge and analyze the recent changes in the work, and their local, regional, national and global boundaries, similarities and differences.
For three days WORK2019 hosted excellent plenaries, interesting and intriguing paper presentations and opened great discussions in the sessions and also during breaks. Warm thank you to all participants for making the WORK2019 conference such a success!
Welcome to the next WORK Conference in 2021! Keep following us on Twitter and Facebook for future updates.
On behalf of the WORK2019 organizing committee,
Professor Anne Kovalainen
