However, the growth of teleworking has not satisfied optimistic expectations. A proper understanding of telework is needed not only as a technological phenomenon, but also in terms of associated economic, cultural and social issues. Telework should be placed into the context of change in business strategies, organizational cult...

This investigation focuses on the psychological and social dimensions of managing and solving indoor air problems. The data were collected in nine workplaces by interviews (n = 85) and questionnaires (n = 375). Indoor air problems in office environments have traditionally utilized industrial hygiene or technical expertise. However, indoor air problems at workplaces are often more complex issues to solve. Technical questions are inter-related with the dynamics of the work community, and the coope...
