Want to find out a little more about the Digital Crossroads Erasmus+ project, want to meet the partners who are making all of this possible, then just keep reading…
DIGITAL CROSSROADS has been developed with a clear objective in mind: to design, develop and implement a new approach to train European SME managers in employee digital wellbeing.
What is the need?
Growing scientific evidence shows that unconstrained use of digital devices can have negative consequences for businesses in terms of productivity/performance and employees’ mental and physical health. Multitasking and the constant stream of notifications are associated with lower levels of creativity and concentration, and higher stress, while the google effect causes decreased memory efficiency. Collectively called “technostress” these issues are caused both by the technology AND by organisational expectations. The “always on” culture of checking emails at home or on holiday leads to worsened emotional states, poor work-life balance and burnout.
Our project has a strong and cross representational consortium involving 4 partners from 4 countries
