March 2016, Theme 3

Theme 3 - Employee wellbeing and work life quality

In the Fall 2015 the joint actions of Theme 3 focused on the article written by Pedro, Julia, Laurens and Pille on job quality and the role of job security and institutional contexts in comparative European case studies – the paper started as conference presentation at CRIMT conference in May 2015 and developed into a full paper. Recently it was submitted to ChangingEmployment Research Paper Series.

The second joint activity of Theme 3 members is an edited volume on the job quality in (post) crisis Europe, which is edited by Julia Kubisa and Tommy Isidorsson. The book is a Theme 3/ ChangingEmployment project as it gathers contributions from Theme 3 participants – ESRs, supervisors and ER3, and from Dragos of Theme 1. The authors aim to look at the recent changes in job quality on the European and country/sectorial levels, with a special focus on organisational contexts and individual responses and experiences. The book project is still at early stage but the participants managed to form a schedule for the next months. Most of the authors participated in the book workshop at Strathclyde in November and the next planned meeting will take place in Berlin, after ILPC conference.
