Projecttitle:
To provide socially necessary services: Is working for the common good attractive?
Project description:

GenDis investigates the social situation, occupational mobility and occupational motivation of service workers producing public goods. Particular attention is paid to occupations in which contradictions between the relevance to the common good and working conditions are commonplace or in which personnel bottlenecks are predicted. The project aims to find out under which conditions people of working age are also prepared in the future to engage professionally in socially necessary services (e.g. health, security, education).

The Sociological Research Institute Göttingen (SOFI)  is leading the project, evaluating survey and process data and carrying out qualitative analyses. Scientific cooperation partners in the project are the  BIBB (Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training) and the GWS.
