21ST CENTURY WORKFORCES & WORKPLACES

STEPHEN BEVAN ET AL    Book Number: 88385    Product format: Hardback

Are permanent, long-term jobs a thing of the past? Does work have to be in a 'place' or office? How will future managers be selected, educated and developed? What is the future for trade unions? Beyond pay, how will rewards evolve to incentivise workers alongside responsible capitalism? Are we seeing the end of retirement? Recent concerns about globalisation, productivity and the introduction of new technologies have raised questions about the future of the workforce, but are these concerns really justified? The books charts, explains and analyses the years from 2013, a period which has seen much rewriting of employment, but it also outlines what hasn't changed and predicts how the future labour market will develop. Probably recently accelerated due to the pandemic, we will begin to see work environments settle by 2025. One of the greatest neglected policy areas is the gap between productivity as defined by economists (output per hour) and how productivity is interpreted by managers and workers. There must also be a more systematic engagement of trade unions outside the traditional bargaining agenda, modest re-regulation of the labour market to ensure fair protection of all workers, stronger action to inhibit undeserved pay rises at the top, and stronger and more systematic improvements in workplace wellbeing. Also busts the myth that migrants and robots are taking our jobs in a very reasoned book which offers solutions to the real issues. 386pp, diagrams.
