How do employees adapt to innovations
The central question of this project is: When can we expect that
employees function optimal (perform well) and remain healthy within
changing organizations and working environments. The project studies
the process of adaptation of innovations by employees. It is driven by
the view that employees are not the passive recipients of innovations,
rather they purposefully and creatively craft the innovations (e.g. by
complaining about innovations or learning). The critical question is
what are the individual characteristics (both with respect to
relatively stable-traits and dynamic–behaviours) that facilitate
adaptation of innovation within a given work context? Using
transferable insights from social psychology and occupational health
psychology, the project will focus on the interplay between job demands
and resources as well as individual demands and resources that
influence employees’ responses to innovations. The individual ability
to adopt particular innovations in certain circumstances will depend on
the extent to which (a) changes in the work environment prompted by the
innovation fit with
(b) individual characteristics as well as
(c) the individual ability to self-regulate emotions and actions (towards goal achievement).
