Continuity and change in the world of work
The current economic challenges affecting Britain and the rest of the world are increasing the need to understand the implications for work, employers, social groups and individuals at the local, regional, national and international levels.
Listen to an overview presented by Professor Susan Halford:
The Work Futures Resource Centre (WFRC) offers a platform for combining expertise to build multidisciplinary research towards understanding the implications for work, employers, social groups and individuals at the local, regional, national and international levels.
The WFRC existing research projects cluster around a range of themes:
Gender Diversity and Work
The Work Futures Research Centre was delighted to celebrate the eve of International Women’s Day with the inaugural event of a new Public Policy@Southampton commission ‘Gender Equality at Work: how far have we come and how far have we still got to go?’.
We would like to thank all our speakers and guests for contributing to a lively debate and successful event.
Members of the Work Futures Research Centre joined forces with the Sustainability Science at Southampton multidisciplinary research group at the University of Southampton to mark the UN World Day of Social Justice on 20th February.
Duncan Campbell, ILO, provided a talk on 'Labour markets in developing countries: what's new, what's old?'.
