Digitalisation of work creates new forms of work organisations, new management practices, and new ways of labour outsourcing that challenge many aspects of “traditional” work or “old” roles.
Even if it can potentially release positive outcomes such as preventing workers from hazardous tasks, it induces psychosocial risks. This is particularly the case with the recent surge of digital labour platforms or, broadly speaking, what we call the gig economy.
“Digital Stress: Tackling psychosocial risks in platform and gig work” is the new ETUI online self-paced training focusing on this area of trade union work. The course, accessible from 23 May to 19 June 2022, includes tutors support and one live webinar with ETUI experts. The total expected individual workload is about 8 hours. Learners can follow this course at their own rhythm by accessing at any moment the online training platform. The online course, hosted on Moodle, is provided in English and free of charge.
