Digitalization has had an overwhelming impact on the workplace in recent years, making it more associable, editable, interactive, programmable, traceable, communicable and distributable. But this change comes with substantial changes to ways of working. New technologies almost always translate into new work processes, work arrangements, collaborative engagements and thus disrupt the information environment and consolidate equilibra at work. This book aims to bring forward the role of workplace information literacy as a key condition for successful digitalization or digital transformation in today's workplace. Featuring contributions from leading scholars, it examines the multifaceted role of workplace information literacy in organizational operations and its role in the digitalization process, taking into account the role and perspectives of employer and employee.
