New research project: How do platform workers juggle jobs?

17/06/21 - ODDS researchers Francisca Grommé, Claartje ter Hoeven and Wido Oerlemans were awarded an Eramus University Trustfonds grant to find out how platform workers practically organise and experience combining different forms of employment. We know that the majority of platform workers in the Netherlands juggle multiple jobs - which is supported by the functionalities of platform apps. Yet, platform work is often studied in isolation. By combining insights from organisational studies, sociology and organisational psychology, we will seek to learn how platform workers organise and experience 'hybrid employment'.
