We are in the midst of the digital transformation, which also has repercussions for workers and their workplace. Algorithms and algorithmic management (AM) play a key role in this process. AM tools are mainly used in the hiring and recruitment process; for performance management and everyday working decision making. In general, AM is a diverse set of technological tools and techniques to remotely manage workforces, relying on data collection and surveillance of workers to enable automated or semi-automated decision-making. We would like to take the opportunity at Labora.A 2022 to talk about the impact of AM at the workplace from a workers’ perspective and to discuss the results from the UNI Europa – FES survey on Algorithmic Management; giving answers to important questions, such as:
- What is the awareness of workers of the use and the challenges/risks of AM tools?
- How do employers prevent or mitigate the risks generated by AM use?
- What are the experiences with the actions/activities of trade unions to prevent/mitigate the risks generated by AM use?
- What are the expectations towards employers to prevent and mitigate the risks generated by AM?
- What are the expectations towards trade unions regarding prevention and mitigation of the risks generated by AM use?
