The chapters of this book have outlined developments in the organization of work as well as in work and employment conditions and analyzed their likely effects on employees’ well-being, motivation and career prospects. The authors have tried to provide a picture of how socio-economic changes increase work intensity (Paškvan and Kubicek, Chap. 3) and autonomy (Kubicek et al., Chap. 4), shift career responsibility from organizations to employees (Nalis, Chap. 5) and make work more flexible (Gerdenitsch, Chap. 6) as well as of the positive and negative consequences these changes may lead to.
