Mobile Working in HE administration The Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), with more than 800 employees in management and administration, has been working on the challenges of diversity and digitalization with the aim of achieving inclusion through mobile working. The WU presents itself as an attractive international employer for professionals in several positions and fields, as well as for young professionals who expect flexible working conditions. At the same time, the WU wants to attract professionals with caring duties, with disabilities, or people in qualification training. This organizational policy has been accompanied by ongoing scientific research on the study of culture change. The research includes topics such as leadership, dynamic group processes in virtual teams as well as intersectional processes between gender and diversity categories, where new forms of inequity appear. On a personal level, career development, managing stress, accountability, and duties appear as well. The aim of the study is not so much to expand knowledge as to analyze strengths and weaknesses of existing models, to extract expectations and wishes, to reveal opportunities and risks, and to examine possible measures and adaptations in the university’s policy. Track: Sustainable HRM and leadership leading to equality, diversity, and inclusion: A necessity for a sustainable society
