10a.002.JYU_WP9 - IoB@work

Project - Summary

  • Internet of Behavior (IoB) is a hot topic in understanding consumer behavior and has lately seen increasing interest in the workplace domain as well, but not much in academia so far.
  • The objective of the IoB@Work project is to find suitable models of predicting human behavioral events, and passively encourage positive behavior.
  • In this project, our goal is to build understanding on how can IoB be utilized in improving wellbeing in a knowledge intensive work environment. In order to have means to build this understanding, following subgoals need to be met and understood:
    1. What are the behavior events affecting work wellbeing?
    2. How to detect behavioral events of interest?
    3. How to measure and quantify behavior?
    4. How to encourage positive behavior with the means of IoB?
  • In our approach to operationalize IoB in workplace context we aim for minimal intrusion into employees' privacy by:
    1. utilizing ECCOLA in the design and implementation prase, and
    2. building the experimental data collection platform in laboratory context.

See “Project Summary” section above.

Project - Deliverables

1 IoB-laboratory setting - estabishment (done) and iterative improvement and implementation of new interventions / stimuli in the experimental setting

Project - Benefits to IAB

  • Means to detect, measure, quantify and (dis)incentivize behavior affecting wellbeing in a knowledge intensive work environment
  • Understanding on what kind of behavior / behavioral patterns influence work wellbeing - positively or negatively
  • Potentially improve effeciency and productivity on employees through higher staff satisfaction / work wellbeing
