Back to search results

The Scientia PhD scholar will research 'digital work', a rapidly emerging form of work conducted and organised through digital means. Examples of digital work include telework, crowdsourcing and electronic freelancing over the Internet. Digital work is seen as a Grand Challenge of the digital age by the Academy of Management due to the lack of understanding of the changing nature of work and its wide-ranging implications (Colbert et al. 2016). This thesis will involve three empirical studies focused on new digital work forms: a) remote digital work within traditional organisations, b) crowdsourcing and c) 'digital nomading', in which location-independent digital freelancing is combined with global migration.
