18 February 2022/Article

Congrats to our Research Managers Žilvinas Martinaitis and Audronė Sadauskaitė along with Mariachiara Barzotto from University of Bath for publishing their work in Work, Employment and Society!

The article is a critical case study of the Lithuanian radio-electronics sector, which explores why some dismissed workers adapt successfully to the changing structure of an economy, while others remain trapped in low-quality jobs and experience deskilling. It focuses on adaptation trajectories of workers dismissed from four bankrupt radio-electronics factories in Lithuania. The transition from planned into market economy gives important insight into how the digital transformation should be managed.
