I'm interested in how employees stay happy and healthy at work, particularly when faced with change, including the introduction of flexible working practices (Het Nieuwe Werken).
In studying this I focus on psychological resources (e.g. self-efficacy, meaning-making), job-related resources (support, leadership, team climate) and proactive behaviors (e.g. job crafting, self-leadership). The aim being to understand how these factors may help to optimize motivation, (adaptive) performance and well-being.
I'm also interested in the role of organizational identification and psychological ownership in this process.
Key words: work engagement, performance, well-being, job crafting, meaning-making, adaptation to change
