Pandemiebedingt zu mehr Raumsouveränität

Eine qualitative Analyse der Erfahrungswerte und Vorstellungen von Mitarbeitenden zu verschiedenen Arbeitsumgebungen

The modern working world is subject to constant change, which is caused by external influences such as rapid technological progress and newly emerging crisis situations. For example, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has significantly changed the working reality of many employees since 2020. The previously prevalent concept of stationary work has been progressively replaced by mobile work, especially with the home office as a concrete work environment. The objective of this paper is to identify long-term work environment perceptions through qualitative analysis of employees' personal experiences, also taking into account corporate cultural aspects. This is based on the New Work approach, which places the individual at the center and thus shapes a work culture determined by selfdetermination and self-concordance. 

In the empirical part of this work, six qualitative guided interviews were conducted with employees of hatchery GmbH, which is representative of a young, small to mediumsized and advanced digitalized company in the media and information industry. The data analysis was conducted using the documentary method according to Bohnsack, whereby findings were generated in particular on the following three focal points: 1. expectations of hybrid work models; 2. choice of work environment depending on work activity; 3. importance of social interaction at the workplace. In a discussion section based on the respective findings, these are then placed in an encompassing context. In summary, this thesis found that the pandemic-related experiences of employees have a positive effect on the self-determination and self-concordance of their choice of work environment and thus on spatial sovereignty. In perspective, the pandemicrelated changes and the establishment of employees' expectations thus contribute to an acceleration of the transformation process to New Work.
