„Forced Innovation“ with the chance to break routines

Home office under the conditions of corona, according to Prof. Dr. Søren Salomo, falls into the category of "forced innovation". But even a forced innovation experience can provide opportunities for those affected. How the perception of the advantages and disadvantages of home office differs among different groups and changes over the duration of the home office experience is the subject of an international study initiated by colleagues from the Copenhagen Center for Health Technology, which Salomo is supervising for Germany. 1,800 people from different professional fields and age groups participated from Germany between the beginning of the survey in March and its end in mid-June 2020, and about 700 from Austria. The interim results presented here refer to these two groups, who worked under similar conditions.
