Also hunger for knowledge? Fancy a snack? Watch this knowledge clip about the research of Tilburg University researchers Brigitte Kroon and Panna Kerti, in which they talk about their research on the impact of COVID-19 measures on the work and wellbeing of Central and Eastern European migrant workers.

The fragmentation of labor relations complicates compliance with COVID-19 measures in food production chains. Substantial Covid-19 infections have been found among migrant workers here. The research from an HRM perspective provides insight into the mechanisms that explain and maintain the unsafe working and living conditions of Central and Eastern European migrant workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Brigitte Kroon en Panna Kerti (Human Resource Studies) is affiliated with Tilburg School of Sociology and Behavioral Sciences.
