Abstract

In sectors using information and communications technology (ICT) as platform for innovation, the meaning of the term 'work' is undergoing fundamental change. New technologies are helping to accommodate employees' individual preferences regarding working hours and location. In this respect, Germany is insufficiently prepared for the high demands of the future.
