Also at CeBIT 2016 as well as the presentation of the mid-term review of the initiative "Working 4.0" of the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. Reason enough for a 3-person ZDF team led by editor Sha Hua to travel to Kassel on March 3, 2016 and obtain a statement on site from Prof. Dr. Jan Marco Leimeister as one of the leading researchers in the field of digitization of the working world and crowdsourcing in the German-speaking world.

The resulting contribution on the topic of "Arbeit 4.0" (Work 4.0), in which, in addition to Professor Leimeister as a representative of science, Federal Minister of Labor Andrea Nahles, a client, three crowdworkers, and Ver.di Federal Executive Board member Lothar Schröder, among others, have their say, was broadcast in the ZDF program "Frontal 21" on March 15, 2016. It is available in the ZDF media library at
