These issues affect not only individual employees’ behavior but also the overall well-being at work in their customer companies and organizations. The project focuses on studying new practices by using on-line coaching tool for healthcare professionals. The themes under study cover how to manage mobile and multi-locational work specific workload factors individually as well as collectively in distributed teams and organizations.
