Digital calendar

"Put a meeting in my calendar!" The literacy practice of the digital calendar in workplace

Like many digital tools, the shared, digital calendar has been created in order for people to organize their everyday lives, but it can also pose challenges. In a sub study from the project Professional Communication and Digital Media, employees at different workplaces share how they use – or try to avoid using – the workplace calendar.

Fixed rules for free communication

Today, a lot of people work from home or while traveling, and fewer people have their own desks at the office. How does this affect communication? What are the differences between such workplaces and those where people still have their own desks? In this article, linguistic researchers from Stockholm University discuss current findings from different research projects on work life communication.

Doing it all at once. Complex work situations for executives

As a pilot for the research project, a group of bachelor students investigated managers’ workdays in different companies. On the basis of these pilot studies, the researchers formed a conference presentation and wrote this extended abstract referring to the students’ essays: Emma Eriksson (now Legaard), Angie Gravett, Emma Hanuliak, Julia Kennerberg and Julia Kozanecki.
