Main aim of cohort, please briefly describe the main objectives of the cohort
  Well-being at work is an important contributor to organizational performance and employee health. Factors affecting well-being and working conditions at workplaces are typically measured using personnel surveys. In this project focusing on employees working in health care, the aim is to examine whether these factors can be assessed using routine, daily accumulating digital data on personnel and organizational performance. With data-driven approaches, we will construct objective digital indicators for online monitoring of working hour characteristics and workload and evaluate their relevance for employee health and well-being at work measured e.g., as absences from work due to sickness, or quality of care.
