Many innovations do not get implemented. One reason is the limited innovation adoption of employees. Because they may see innovation as useless, not making their work easier, or that bosses and others do not stimulate its use. We wanted to know how innovation adoption worked in the Dutch logistics sector. We assumed that mindful organising could...

We are writing in regards to the review by Koranyi et al (1) on precarious employment and occupational accidents and injuries.

Among employees in precarious employment, those with multiple jobs may face additional health risks, e.g. due to combining work schedules and job roles.

Using a task approach, this study examined the extent to which employee regulatory focus would “gravitate” employees towards promotion- versus prevention-oriented tasks within their jobs, and whether a subsequent regulatory fit/misfit would be associated with their well-being (i.e., mental health and job satisfaction). In a pre-study among 37...
