ICTs, knowledge, people and work

e-Skill-Biased Technological Change (SBTC) states that the changes in occupational structure and individual and in personal and organizational labour results are linked not just to ICT use but with the new corporate strategy; new organizational structures; new human resources policies; new skills and competences of organizations and individuals and also with the institutional and political context.

This research area sets out to analyse:

  • (4) The determinants of ICT use and that of information, communication and knowledge flow by individuals;

  • (5) The relationship between e-SBTC and the demands of work force skills and competences;

  • (6) The results of e-SBTC on individual level (salary, commitment, balance) at organizational level (labour efficiency) and at social level (well-being and inequality).
