New working methods
The increasing shortage in the Dutch labour market and increasing demands made by consumers lead to equally increasing demands being made on employees. On the other hand, there are fewer opportunities to recruit precisely those employees that meet these requirements. This means that organizations need to make more efficient use of the available workforce. Getting staff to work together in groups of mixed compositions, assigning them to tasks that require their specific competences, makes work more challenging and more fun and makes the organization a more attractive employer. But how can organizations create these conditions? To answer this question, Windesheim is conducting research on new working methods, also called Social Innovations.
