The networking and digitization, in short the working world 4.0, brings big changes for work processes and structure. Some companies have to restructure themselves in order to be able to make the digital work world possible in the first place. This is especially true for the chances of employees who can work in a very flexible way. On the other hand, there are risks associated with the merging of work and private life.
