Work, Management and Mastery

This research group is a department of the Work Research Institute (AFI) and combines expertise on work life in general, work organisations, work environment, occupational health and safety research, restructuring processes and conflict resolution.

We put emphasis on the relationship between the institutions and the workplaces; on how workplace practice influence the institutions of the Norwegian work life and on how law and agreements, the tripartite cooperation, the organisation of social partners and labour policy influence structures and processes in the workplace.

Our researchers are engaged in international research and publishing, and have extensive experience as professional partners in research and development projects.

We use a combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods; group and individual interviews, ethnography, discourse analyses, statistical methods, as well as the design of organisational change and innovation projects in companies and organisations.
