Futures of Work

How does digital technology, demographic change, government policies and labour market institutions shape the future of work?

As will, it is likely, responses to possible future health pandemics. Each provides opportunities and challenges.

The future of work is not written. Choices and constraints exist that offer a range of possible futures. How these choices and constraints play out will affect individual wellbeing, the productivity performance of organisations and the competitiveness and wellbeing of communities, regions and countries. This strand of the GRP examines the futures of work through its research and engagement with the public, practitioners and policymakers. It aims to support a future of work that benefits all, including in terms of equality, inclusiveness and diversity. Much of this research is undertaken by CREW, a network that connects researchers of employment and work within Warwick and which is supported by business and government stakeholders across the Midlands and beyond, nationally and internationally.

Some examples of recent research, conducted at Warwick, around this theme, can be found in the Publications and Blogs Section below:
