The aim of this study was to examine 1) what kind of profiles of psychological resource and risk factors can be identified among media workers, and 2) how these profiles differ from each other in the experiences of digitalization and intensified job demands. The data was collected via an e-survey carried out in late 2019 among Finnish media workers (n = 979, 68% women, average age 47.6 years). K-means cluster analysis revealed four profiles of psychological resource and risk factors among the media workers: 1) nonchalant relaxers (low error strain and thinking about errors, low overcommitment to work, 24%), 2) resilient multitaskers (high resilience, multitasking preference, and error risk taking, 28%), 3) precise focusers (Low multitasking preference, high error competence and thinking about errors, 22%) and 4) vulnerable overcommitters (Iow resilience, error competence, and error risk taking, high error strain and overcommitment to work, 260/o). Precise focusers and vulnerable overcommitters experienced the most strain in their work caused by digitalization, and moreover vulnerable orvercommitters were the most unsure about their digital skills. Nonchalant relaxers experienced the least intensified job demands, and resilient multitaskers experienced digitalization more as a resource compared to the other profiles.
