Using multipresence strategy as coping method in mobile work
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Conference contribution › Scientific › peer-review
Design. Highly mobile employees (N=25) were selected from four companies. We looked for the communication events where an interviewee worked in some physical place and simultaneously communicated virtually with others.
Results. Altogether 344 communication events were identified. In all of them, synchronous or/and asynchronous technologies were used for communication. The events occurred in the main workplace (N=114), at home (N=104), in moving places such as taxis (N=51), in third places such as hotels (N=53), and secondary places such as customer premises (N=22). When the contents of communication events were analyzed in details, we found three types of presence strategies: virtual, dual and multipresence. Then, the specific causes and the circumstances that lead to a multipresence strategy were studied as well as the benefits and costs attached to these events.
