The Quality of Working Life Revisited
Along with colleagues David Guest from King’s College London and Angie Knox from Sydney University, IER’s Chris Warhurst has published a journal virtual special issue that re-evaluates classic articles on the quality of working life published in Human Relations over the past 50 years.
Future Proofing Apprenticeships
The study explored how apprenticeships could be developed to meet the changing job roles and skills needs, and help to ‘build back better’ in two sectors where the Co-op delivers most apprenticeships: food retail and funeral care.
Despite distinct differences between the two sectors, there were a lot of common themes including a broadening of job roles, more flexible working and the need to develop digital skills.
The report 'Future Proofing Apprenticeships' was launched at a virtual conference on Thursday 26th November, attended by sector stakeholders, apprenticeship organisations and Government Departments.
