About us

The Human Performance Management (HPM) group focuses its research and education on the optimization of the role of human resources in operational processes of performance. In other words, how should we (re-)design work and organization to obtain a high-performance organization in which employees could work effectively, healthily, and enjoyably. In this respect, we argue that the best fit between humans and work is achieved when both the human side and work side are integrally (re-)designed and (re-)developed to improve performance. Moreover, we carefully consider how technology may play a role in this, as an application area (e.g., in high-tech industry, in robotization), as a means for conducting research (e.g., wearables), and as tool for intervention (e.g., Apps) toward optimized human performance in organizations. We work closely with an extensive network of industrial and institutional partners which provides us access to unique and challenging data.
