The proliferation of information and communication technology (ICT) has significantly transformed the way work is organized in many companies today. A highly differentiated and elaborated repertoire of collaboration tools affords employees and organizations with unprecedented leeway in deciding when, where, how, and with whom work is to be done. Finally, it seems, employees are empowered to fashion their own solution for their work-life balance. At the same time studies acknowledge that we live in demanding, sometimes over-demanding times.
Extended freedom puts the onus on employees, teams, and managers to craft their work.
Under these circumstances, delivering high performance and staying healthy over long periods of time is an impressive achievement.
Our research aims at understanding how high performers succeed to maintain their level of performance and to balance demands and periods of rest.
