Personal profile


“By implementing (technological) innovations in a tailor-made way (i.e. reckoning with characteristics of different target groups like older workers, workers with a lower educational level or certain disabilities) more workers will be able and motivated to remain in the labor market until a later age”. 

Research profile

Maria Peeters is a Full Professor at the Human Performance Management Group of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Her research focuses on workforce sustainable performance and diversity in a high tech work environment. Her areas of expertise include worker (ill)health and well-being, work engagement, sustainable employability, intervention research (including job crafting), work-life balance and (implementation of) technological innovations.  

Owing to the rapid pace on which newly developed technologies are implemented and the accompanying lack of support for effective usage of technological innovations, attention for workers’ sustainable performance appears to be potentially threatened. A solid understanding of the implementation process of technology on sustainable performance is pivotal, hereby taking into account the Knowledge Skills and Abilities (KSA) of different target groups in organizations.
