Project description
Workload among personnel has traditionally been measured using questionnaire surveys. In this project, we will develop digital measures of personnel workload in inpatient hospital care. By linking data from a routine organizational data pools (health care and personnel administration records), we construct algorithms to predict employee well-being. This project represents a proof-of-concept study for novel digital tools to collect information on factors affecting employee health, sickness absences and quality of working life at individual and work unit levels.
